Last week I showed you the flower scrumbles that were the start of this New Leaf Project.
This week I have made a good start on the 'greenery' background to this project.
I warped up my rigid heddle loom with a coarse random variegated yarn, and now I'm on the fun part.
The weaving, so far, consists of 'normal' loom weaving using the heddle and shed, and I'm also using needle weaving and various knots in a spontaneous way to create an abstract garden scene.
After viewing this photo on my phone/camera (and here in 2D) I think it could also be interpreted as a country landscape scene, whereas I was imagining it, while making it, as a birds-eye view of a garden, I can now see it's dual perspective.
I shall have to just carry on and see where my muse takes me.
A little bit of stitching has been made on my Crazy Quilt block, but not enough to take a photo.
More tidying/unpacking in my craft studio has given me a much better workspace.
Mid-week, I actually baked two cakes. Not very often I get the urge to make a cake, but I thought I would give Tony a treat now that he is back home again.
Saturday morning just after 10am we had a bit of an earth quake here. It rocked me in my armchair from side to side, and if my cup of tea had been full it would have spilled on the side-table.
A lovely sunny day yesterday saw me in the garden catching up with some weeding around the paths.
That was my week.
