iceland wall hanging

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...

Wow, that's lovely! Can't wait to see what you weave next, but I guess I'll have to :)
