And who we do it for. All in all it’s been a busy week. My father’s family is having the annual Family Reunion this weekend and I have been busily painting these eggs for the auction held on Sunday afternoon.
This clock design is my DSH (dear sweet husband)’s design. This is a prototype and he wanted my little snail and mushroom painted on the pendulum part… so I did. This will be finished this afternoon.
In the evenings I have been working on my card weaving. This is a 4 card, 2 color weave with 2 cards for the edging. They are strung with one color in 2 holes and another color in the other 2 holes. Very easy set-up. It is woven with only 2 turns forward, 2 turns back and makes a narrow band that is one color on the top and another color on the bottom. This pic shows the blue on top (and my Cheerios cards…lol).
This picture shows the other side of the band. This is white . I have twisted the cards and band to show the other side. With some more practice I will hopefully be able to use this technique to make whatever alphabet or design I want on the band. Or it can be used to do brocade work on the plain band. I could really get excited about this..lol
For the other tablet weaving junkies out there here is a site that has many…easy and not so easy… patterns. I found them easy to read and easy to follow the directions. I love this site.. Thank you, thank you, Eve the Just, for the time and effort you have put into this site.
