Flax-woven angel

How lovely is this?  A bit late for Christmas, but save the idea for this year, instead – click here for step-by-step instructions with photos.  Okay, perhaps she’s not exactly woven, but still, it’s a lovely, crafty idea.  I’m sure you could make the angel out of alternative materials if flax isn’t convenient for you(!), but the website gives advice on all aspects of gathering, preparing, dyeing and weaving flax, so if you like the idea of weaving with something genuinely green (okay, I know flax itself isn’t the colour green, but you know what I mean ***see comments below, before you pick me up on this!) it’s very worth checking out.

All quiet…?

It’s been a quiet weekend for me in terms of blogging, but I’ve been working non-stop on all sorts of fun things, some of which have made their way onto the catalogue pages, and some are just still little kernels of ideas, waiting for the right time to (or more accurately, for me to have time to let them) grow.

Anyway, be sure to check out the Latest Additions page for all the bits & bobs I have finally got sorted, including a FREE ‘How to Weave a Bookmark‘ PDF, a FREE counted thread chart, and a fun new kit added to the Friendship Weaving page.

Enjoy, and keep checking back, as I have lots more still to come 🙂
