Hello, I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather. I certainly am, there is nothing as nice as having the sun beaming through the blinds. I love opening the back door and the sky looks so blue. I don't have a garden I just have a balcony that I grow a few pots of herbs oregano, rosemary, thyme and sage but it make makes so happy to see them really thrive in this great weather . I think that is why I love blogs so much, I can pop over to your blogs and enjoy all  your beautiful photos of your stunning gardens, so thank you for sharing. It just makes me feel happier.
 When I was a little girl many many years ago in primary school , I was introduced to the magic of weaving . I remember being amazed that by simply weaving threads, intricate patterns could be achieved.
I woke up the other morning eager to recreate that feeling. I made a grid pattern  in cream and then I made a very long chain in the other colour . It was then a case of sitting down with a coffee and a homemade flapjack and off I went weaving over and under. I can't tell how addictive this is. I'm sure you will agree that when you use a random dyed yarn you get a beautiful fabric. I've made quite a few ,I just cant stop . I am going to weave in the other direction to try and made a plaid pattern I will share the results when I do.

 I found an interesting website called The Plaidmaker . My goodness this place is fun . I'm off to plaid .hehe.


  1. Wow, it looks amazing what a beautiful effect. I will certainly be giving that a go.

  2. I really like this effect! I'd never seen anything like it before now. It sort of reminds me of that double-sided crochet you see sometimes in potholders and blankets. Thanks for sharing! I hope you have a good weekend.

  3. This is such a great idea, I love your woven creations.

  4. That does look fun to make. I like the idea of the coffee and the homemade flapjack too!

  5. Ooh, now this looks interesting! Weaving seems to be very fashionable at the moment but this is a take on it I've not seen before, very original. x

  6. It certainly looks like you've been having fun with them!
