craft week

when you are 7 it takes patience and determination to weave 3 squares to make a flower.

 

 

 

when the weaving is finished you get to choose beads for the center.

 

 

 

 

 

finished,  what do you think?

 

 

what’s next, Nanna?

 artistic patches on old cotton, dye sticks, heat set and washed.

cool! what do we do tomorrow?

      Nat, get in touch with your local weaver’s guild, see if you can rent/borrow a table loom. I will give you lessons by e-mail. then you can really learn on Bryan’s backstrap loom.

        Thanks Jean, that is my hope to get Bryan to make me one of back-strap loom to bring back. I haven’t got that far yet. Thanks for your offered to teach me. I was promised a table loom from my colleague, but he is too busy to unearth it from his mom garage at the moment! I’m so excited to learn to weave – hugs Nat

    Read some more stories, play some eye spy and do some more crafts. Maybe go to the library and read some books. Go to the park…write a story…and have lots more fun. Jillian 🙂
