It’s half term so we’ve been busy doing very little.  One thing we have achieved is a bit of stick weaving…a strangely satisfying art form…first you need to find a good selection on Y-shaped sticks = outside jaunt.

Then wrap each side of the Y.

To do this you tie the string on, then create a loop at the back.

Then bring the other end through the loop and pull tight.

Continue till both sides are done.

We measured two arm lengths of string for the next bit.  (This is Bella doing her Christ the Redeemer impression)

Using a large darning needle (new it would come in useful) weave between the two sides to create the horizontal lines.

Ta-dah!

Finally weave wool in V shapes vertically from one side to the next. This is Bella’s finished creation.

Being an adult, I wanted mine tighter…therefore it’s still a work in progress…

Surprisingly satisfying.
