A lovely exhibition of knitted, felted and crocheted creatures and flowers hidden amongst the trees at Acorn Bank, a National Trust property in Cumbria. It's all part of the latest Eden Arts project and a real treat!

Whilst I am away in Cumbria this week, I decided to have a go at a four block double weave in a version I haven't tried before. This version is adapted from an article in Handwoven from May/June 1992 and I am weaving it on my 8 shaft Leclerc Voyageur folding table loom. Here is what I have woven so far-it's exciting to see the blocks emerging then switching to form an intricate pattern that dazzles the eyes. Great fun!
