Learning to weave ..

on a branch


For quite a sometime, I have been admiring on Pinterest all the lovely branch/stick weaving that has been posted and, I very much wanted to try one myself.  Although, I promised myself to look for a piece of branch once rain stopped, I kept forgetting to do so.
This morning while walking, I came upon pile of dried branches and picked up this  one thinking of the project. As soon as I got home, I started on  it. It took several attempts before I could (over and under) do a V shape and I still could not properly weave the V turn.

After I finished, I browsed for more information about 'how to' and found another article via pinterest with different instructions from the one I followed, so..


I will look for another suitable branch..



weekend walking......so many pretty gardens to see






Thank you for dropping by to see my creative attempts,

till next time,

Sunny Saturday...




I have finished sewing the first part the project. There is still more to do.


 better pictures today, as there was so much bright sunlight..



Summer flower project also continues.. more to make


And, a bit of work on the crewel embroidery too



Lastly, a small piece of applique/collage; this card was the inspiration. I cut all the details free form and used slip stitch to sew it. I painted the measuring tape with acrylic paint and, used felt bits for the pins. I like how it turned out, but still do not know I want it displayed.









and today was a perfect day for ice cream !!






Summer gardens from the neighbourhood ....




Thank you for stopping by for peek,
