new lil loom

I recently found this small loom at a rummage sale and haven’t been able to stop weaving since then. So I made some new bracelets that are a little smaller and half woven/half leather and stuffed. I’ve been trying to use mostly natural materials like cotton, wool and leather, there is some acrylic yarns though because I can’t resist certain bright colours…

I’m trying to figure out what I want to make so I can combine these 4 techniques…

I finished it! and started another…

infinity-imagined:

Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns.  This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide.  The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.

I started this as a prototype of some small purses I’d like to start developing. I forgot how much I enjoyed doing embroidery for hours.

Still trying to create a line sheet so I can do wholesale orders of my earrings but I seem to have some sort of mental block that stops me from completing the task.

in  keeping with my last post…

I don’t think I’ve mentioned yet that I moved into the house where my crochet tree currently resides in the porch. I think next time I move it (unless someone has a better idea) it will go outside so I can see how the elements change it, I’m curious to see if it will rust in a nice way. For now I enjoy seeing how the sun shines through it and makes shadows at different points of the day.
