Waving is for rainy weekends.

I was away for some time now. And a lot happened in the meantime….New job, new country, new city, new life: I moved to Barcelona. Between all the hustle, there was only some reading and Skillshare time left, not much time for the blog unfortunately. As a matter of fact, I am writing this right now from Rusia, where I am on training still. Yep, these past weeks were like a rollercoaster!

That until past Sunday, when it rained and I slowed down for one day only. I was all installed, and was enjoying the first coffee in my new home, when I felt the urge to have something made by me in my new flat. So I decided to give to give weaving a first try and make a wall hanging.

I had limited resources, but nevertheless all I needed to get started. The loom that I bought in Frankfurt, some (very) coloured yarn, and the desire to learn something new.

Weaving is really easy once you got the main idea. Sure that with time and practise one can get really fancy and ad a personal twist to the pieces, but the trick is to get started. I started a while ago collecting inspiration on Pinterest and I am amazed about how beautiful these wall woven hangings are. I took Savannah’s Kurka Skillshare class and a free article from ‘A beautiful Mess’ to get the basics and simply started applying all that I have learned.

The color combination is crazy, but the process was so relaxing and went prefect with coffee and rain. I inserted some tiny pom-pom’s to give it more depth 🙂

Has anyone tried weaving or macrame before? Would love to see some pictures!
