Yesterday I took a day off and had fun doing nothing, must do that more often! A friend came visiting, we drank coffee, and then went to visit another mutual friend who literally jumped for joy to see us, so that was nice! It was so good to meet up again!
Today I have another woven piece to share, I keep chopping up painted paper and weaving it, and really enjoy the process of making something new. This one was inspired by a nursery rhyme:
'Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And little maids all in a row'
First I wove the background, and then sewed it together. I have had this packet of little 'maids' in my stash for many years, and didn't know what to do with them. The silver bells were left over from some Christmas presents long, long ago. The shell is from a vacation long past. I arranged them on the weave to represent the words of the rhyme:
and thanks a lot for coming by!
