My mom had requested I make her a weaving to hang on the door. She wanted it long and thin and we discussed what to put in it, the colors, and the shapes. I came up with this drawing:
She wanted hills or mountains in greens and browns, a waterfall, trees near the top, and a blue sky with a few clouds. It took me a while to do, it's been on the loom for what seems like forever, and I'm not sure why. But I finished it today.
It was fun to work on and I think it turned out pretty good. I was frustrated making the trees because the yarn I used is this strange yarn with long strands hanging from it. That's how I got it to look poofy - I had the strands come out - but it was very irritating to work with. The strands get tangled up and it's hard to see what I'm doing. I've used the yarn once before for another set of trees in a different weaving but I don't remember it being as annoying. Maybe because the trees were bigger the first time?
Other than that though, this was a cool thing to work on. My mom seems to like it a lot too so hopefully she'll enjoy seeing it on the door for a while.
