What’s been keeping me away? I’ve been having a weaving good time!

OK. So that is a really bad pun, and I have been away for a really long 6 weeks. I am sorry readers. When I first started this blog, although I really started it purely for myself, I thought there would be absolutely no reason why I couldn’t post at least once a week. Pfft! Well, goes to show how crap I am! This blogging thing is time consuming!!!!
Anyway. Without going into too much detail, a combination of laziness, a bitch of a cold and the distractions of other hobbies have combined to create a blog-absence.
However, I have a new craft-love: weaving! Now be warned, I am a long way from having any idea what I am doing. My wee black cat Nefertiti knows as much as I do! But, I have had so much fun!
This is my very first piece- a wall hanging for my bedroom:

It is wonky with a bazillion mistakes, but I am very proud of it, and it is still hanging on my wall:

After my first piece, I realised that some different textures would create a lot more interest in a wall hanging, so I went off and purchased a whole lot more wool in different weights and textures.
Onto the next two wall hangings:

After three “successful” (judgement pending) wall hangings, a friend suggested placemats. I thought “brilliant Christmas gift for the parentals” and got weaving in colours that would work in their kitchen/dining.

Then, having created those, I decided a mat in pinks and purples would be nice for me:

I love this piece! It’s so 70’s bespoke!!!!
