This shawl was made using all kinds of different fibers, and with some pattern manipulation.
It didn’t turn out exactly as I wanted it to, but I like it anyway.
I wanted the “skipped” parts of the pattern to be more visible. I guess I should’ve done those in a contrasting color. Oh well, maybe next time.
More pages from my Art Journal:
We’ve had a nice weather over the weekend so it was a perfect opportunity for me to ride my new bike! 🙂
After a long ride one must rehydrate. 🙂
I also like the woven table. 🙂
Have a great day everyone!
I looove my journals! I know, I have too many already, but I can’t stop making them! I made a small one out of a brochure (something my husband brought from his trip to Denmark last year – yes, I keep all kinds of junk) and it’s so cute! Small and cute!
It’s a little bit bigger than my hand, as you can see in the next photo.
I love playing in it. 🙂
Sometimes I feel like working in a bigger journal, sometimes I like working in a small one. That’s why I have to have so many of them. 🙂
My birthday was on September the 18th, so this spread was inspired by that.
And I also finished working in this old journal!
I made it a long time ago, and it might be my first handmade journal (if I remember correctly). My dear “handmade paper/ textured / first time coptic binding / beginners” journal.
There it is, on the left, with a beaded spine. Now happily living on a shelf with my other Art and Travel journals. 🙂
The finished ones, that is. 🙂
I’ve been knitting!
I am not a great knitter, I can knit only simple shapes such as scarves and other things with straight edges 🙂 and maybe an ugly sock or two. But I do plan to learn more and be able to knit a sweater (maybe one day).
As I was organizing my studio I found a lot of yarn that just wasn’t “speaking” to me anymore. Not for my weaving, that is. But then I thought I could knit something with it. So I took three strands of yarn, and made this chunky long scarf:
It’s wide and soft and just perfect for cold weather.
The other one was made for the gentleman in the photo (you can’t see his face because he wanted it that way), my husband. 🙂
He wanted it striped so that’s what I did, but I added the pattern just for fun. Actually, it’s only a simple change of stitches every two or three (or twenty) rows. But it looks good, and hubby loves it. So I am happy.
The third one is a handwoven scarf.
But it actually started as a set of table runners! I took a fine greyish cotton I almost forgot I had, added a bit of lime green cotton, and wove my table runners. Then I washed the fabric (and prepared to cut and sew it), but it shrunk! And not only that, it softened too! So magically, a scarf was born! 🙂
Well, why not?
Looks great to me.
Hello lovely people! The vacation is over and I’ home again.
We had a great time in Greece, as always. Our rented tent was fantastic, the view was fantastic, and the weather was fantastic! 🙂 Can you tell I’m happy with the vacation? 🙂
Here is the view from our place:
There weren’t a lot of people left in the camping, which was great! Peace and quiet. That’s what I like.
And here is our tent. It looks small in the photo but it was actually much bigger than we expected.
(That was pretty much all I did for over two weeks – reading books or sleeping)
Camping has a wonderful small private beach:
Meda had a lot of fun swimming (and rolling in the dirt). 🙂
Hubby took all the photos this time, I was to lazy to do anything. 🙂
Thank you for visiting! Have a great day! 🙂
