Bringing the elements of a wall hanging together and incorporating them on to the withy framework.

Current work in progress

I used a framework of withies, hessian strips and reclaimed copper wires.  The elements will be alligned with these as the work develops.

THE WALL HANGING -DETAILS

This wall hanging is designed to fit a specific space above a stairwell.

Over the next few days I will post some of the detail of the work.

Firstly – here is one of the freeform spirals before being incorporated.  This is worked in two soft yarns of differing weights to give a variation in texture as well as colour.

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.

A quick look at what I am working on at the moment.  A wall hanging incorporating willow canes, copper wire and a wide  variety of yarns.  I haven’t counted them!


I found this example of surface crochet – which is beautifully simple and suitable for a beginner – so I thought I would share it.  Enjoy!
