New WG, New friend x 2, New Macrame!

 New WG!
An amazing glaze too!
Me thinks a dry barium glaze, the copper carbonate makes the blue/purples in glazes which I love!
Correct me if I'm wrong...my clay brain is a bit dusty!

Today I'm linking in with Lou from Little Green Shed
She has a blog link in, every Saturday, where you can showcase what 'Nature' things you have brought into the home called 
"Nature in the Home"

Isn't that up our alley? ....join in..let's show them what lovely Aussie Flora we have!!
Mine today is a weed?
We picked it up on the way home from the beach...as you do!



 A New Macrame
I'm on a roll, this one I have dip dyed twice, a bit of a wet logistic nightmare but well worth the results?

I will continue with this type of macramé wall hanging I think and will have them in the shop soon!

.....a small but heart felt thanks to you lovely folk who have taken the time to comment time and time again...it spur's me on and I really really appreciate it! xx

Another new friend!
Seen in an oppy by another new friend, who knew I was on the look out!...Thanks Estelle !!!!
Now it's assembled...I'm slowly figuring out how to warp it!
Gotta love retro instructions!
...then it's weave time!
I have loads of naughty tassels to repurpose and I'm slightly excited!!!

If your in Melbourne?..I'm so over this heat! :(

If your not? 
What's the weather like at your place?

Pippa

  1. wow what a lovely blue pot....goes so well with your macrame piece too...which is a stunner...the dyeing has worked really well. Good luck with warping the loom - its a nightmare....I could never weave If I had to set up a loom ..would drive me crazy.

  2. As kids we used to call those fluffy grassheads 'bunny tails' 'cos they looked like them to us, I've always loved them but can't find any around us here.

  4. You're the queen of macrame. What does one do to 'warp' a loom? I should Wiki that term. So much 70s craft. I'm in overload!

    1. You have come to the right place, if 70's craft is your thing!
      To warp, is to thread up the loom for weaving, a bit fiddly!
      But I will conquer the loom! :)

    1. Pear cider, home brew, very good!
      Glad you liked Lou's linky, loads of lovely people!

      A naughty tassel is one that misbehaves in the dye bath or doesn't fluff up so well!
      But I have come across ones that use profanity and tell bawdy jokes too!

  11. Pippa - honestly I don't understand how you make these lovely wall hangings - one being more gorgeous than the next!?! Amazing. The double dip dye might be difficult but is very beautiful. Love your new WGP too.
