It took me a while but I finally finished my first handwoven piece at the weekend.
I started it way back in January last year using a loom Ben bought me for Christmas. We'd just been on a new year trip to Iceland which provided inspiration for the tapestry.
Weaving is something I really enjoy when I sit down to do it - I just found that I didn't get round to doing it very often. Although I quite enjoyed having a project on the go that I could pick up every few months and add to - slow crafting!
I'm really happy how it turned out though, especially as I feared it would all fall apart when I eventually came to take it off the loom.
I'm definitely going to make another. Perhaps inspired by our garden.
Maybe I'll have something for show and tell in 2017...
