Now that I figured out how to braid fibers, I wanted to make one for Stephanie. It needed to match her pendant, so here is what I made last night:
I still think it needs another component for balance, so I just temporarily wrapped one of my chain maille bracelets for the picture. Stephanie, if you read this, think about adding beads or metal to the braided part.
I like the colors better in this one with matching the pendant. I used about 20 strands of yarn/fibers in the braid above.
Next, my artistic harmony turns to quilting. Have lots of quilts to do before Christmas, so I had best get busy!! I’m also planning another “Carla and Lori Creative Adventure Week” in early January. This entails a drive to Manhattan Beach with a car loaded with art supplies. We take over Lori’s living room, and make a HUGE MESS while pursuing our art. We also teach each other what we have learned since the last Creative Adventure Week. I come back home with my brain exploding with creative thoughts!! LOL!
Enjoy your day and do something creative! Hugs, Carla
