birthday present for a good man

While I am digging in the garden and not weaving much I will post some pictures from a month ago –
our joint (my husband’s and mine) birthday present for my father in law – a stool with a cushion
My husband made the stool after Peter Follansbee’s 17 century model, and I tried to come up with a cushion – free variation on 18 century Skåne weaving :)

I forgot to take a picture of the backside, here you can see a little.

my world is flat

Little experiments for the last school assignment  – three dimensional weaving using unusual materials as a weft (anything but yarn).

number one –  spring comes to our little world :

technically it’s not quite 3D,  but it’s not 2D either

number two – Ash bird (used nice long and curly ash wood shavings from my husband’s woodworking),
again quite flat, except the tail.  100% biodegradable, very eco-friendly bird.

Well, at least I kept my family entertained :)

The rest of the time I spent doing traditional flatweave – finished the rölakan sample

and started new folk weaving with the same happy colors:

krabbasnår and munk’s belt (munkabälte) this time:
