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…

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.

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.

 I keep trying to collaborate art styles with my brother Benjamin. Here’s a t-shirt he printed on with his eye stencil that I’ve started embroidering.

flower power

Thanks to the Hastings Highlands Public Library for letting me display my work in their space last month! Inspired by my Mandala and the flowers I made for my tree art installation from a couple years ago, I’ve been working on a new commission to create some new flowers for a window display at a hair dressing salon in Barrie.

Here’s a link to the original flowers I started with: http://elizaplumley.tumblr.com/post/3316677762/spring-comes-early-in-my-house
