Weaving with Julie
Thank you for all your comments on my blog. It really helped me this week. Although I would very much like to have sewed the skyline of Bath (Danielle) I spent 3 long wet days in wind and fog making a willow labyrinth and fence with another artist called Julie (Starks). I am putting together a garden at Evan's kindergarten and this is this first piece of the jigsaw. It was a real team effort of about 5 of us each day plus all the kids from the school and kindergarten. Lots of weaving with willow that will grow and flower and look a bit similar to the one in the picture below which Julie and I did last year. It really is amazing to make houses and tunnels out of this stuff but unlike sewing involves lots of mud. We hit quite a few problems in the ground works, but were so blessed because at every point someone turned up who then helped.
