woven success

I’ve just finished making my first ever woven creation from last summer into a cushion cover at last! I was chuffed with it when I first took it off the loom, but seeing it made into something useful is even better. I am so happy and proud of it, and can’t wait to finish my second bit of weaving – I think two more sessions should do it, if I can get out of bed early enough on two consecutive Thursdays…

Now I just want to gaze at this creation constantly and stroke it over and over. This craze for making things is consuming me. How exciting that we have a whole great big loom in the house!
Probably the peak of this creation’s existence was being exhibited for one night only in Lucy’s Wendy House exhibition alongside several other people’s creations, including a picture by Jake & Dinos Chapman. I don’t expect that this will ever happen again…
