It is the last month of The Stitchbook Collective and this month’s box of goodies is all about weaving.
Helen has sent us a kit to create a loom on cardboard but, you must know by now, it’s all about rust for me! So what better than some old rusty sheep wire to create my own little loom.
and as if by magic
it fits perfectly on the Stitchbook page.
It needs a backing to cushion the spikes of the rusty barbed wire.
As I was doing the weaving with yarn, I wondered whether it would work with just bits of metal woven through linen thread. I have to admit, I am thrilled with this one.
I am not quite sure how to mount it, but I am just enjoying it as is for now.
When Little Miss M (8) saw my weaving she asked if she could have a go, so I made two more looms for our afternoon by the lake.
We collected reeds and other bits and pieces, and she sat on her paddle board to weave
and together we made our diptych entitled ‘An afternoon by the lake’
I am planning to mount them in a box frame when they have fully dried.
