string bag

This is the string bag that was dyed with turmeric a while back. Every time I looked at all those empty diamonds, I kept thinking gotta weave something on that . . .


A tapestry needle. Three strips of bright cotton, each woven all around, front and back. Two little braids. Done.


 Still have my eye on some chain link fence . . .

Way cool. Yes, I don't look at items the same any more since the weaving with Jude, always on the look out. might have to put up a piece of chain link fence just to try it (would make a good land decorstion, yes?

Helen -- hey, definitely! I'm just not sure what to use on the chain link to stand the weather. But actually where I'm thinking never gets direct sun, or very little, so it wouldn't fade too fast. There's a city-owned fence here that was actually contracted to be crocheted on. So cool!
