More weaving..

I did another small project. I went from the cardboard loom, to a loom made out from a picture frame.(instructions via youtube) It worked perfectly for this piece. I used some colourful Beehive tapestry wool which I had.

a bit of embroidery as well.

Learning to weave...

Inspiration to start this project came while browsing through Pinterest; it has so many great ideas to try.  

So, before I went ahead and spend money on a loom and may not want to continue; I made a cardboard loom for beginners
I made mine according to the instructions from , which has valuable tips for a beginner. I also looked at some videos from youtube too.

This is the very first  piece I tried. 

I wanted to continue on, tried to add blocks of colours.

 On the last piece, I tried to do a flower (which turned out like a maple leaf) and also how to add 'rya knots'.

So far, I like weaving the next level perhaps...

for this contemporary kantha piece is Frida Kahlo, one of the great artists whose work I admire a lot.

It took me about week or so to finish the stitching and, I used two layers of very thin cotton. I sketched the face on paper, after several attempts this was the one finally made for stitching. Well, my drawing looks nothing like her :)

 I  have not yet thought about how I want to display it. I have an oval shaped canvas( I used it take this photos) or an embroidery frame might work too.

What do you think of my Frida?

Thank you for stopping by for a peek,

Cushion cover....


took a break from the quilt to make this...and it is out of thrifted yarn.

progress on the saree quilt...I do like making small stitches, even though it is repetitive and tedious.

Thank you for stopping by this sunny sunday,
