EDIT (2/9/08): This piece has moved on to live with my dear friend Jen (aka Treasure the Pirate).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my absolute pride and joy right now. The band is 45" with twist finished fringe. It's made of three colors of crochet cotton: blue, green, yellow. The warp is that of a basket weave. The pickup pattern is a Celtic braid.

I honestly thought with the cold dry weather, my fingers were going to fall off while working on this. If I do this pattern again, I'm going to add one more row of yellow on one side of the knotwork, and I'm going to use the right color for the edge border (oops).

Pattern altered from one found at [link]

Tablet woven belt with brass buckle. Can be used as part of historic costume...

I wove it (about 10 hrs), my boyfriend made the buckle and the end-piece (about 3 hrs).

It was B-day gift for my dear friend Margit.:heart:

I wake up in the morning- it's this usual day, the colors around are blurry and my mind is half asleep, recovering the real things and the things that only appeared in my dreams. Sometimes I mix the two, but only for a second. Sometimes I wish the world was prettier and the trees always absorbed the sunshine at 6 am in the morning before school. I love the smell of the trees after the rain and the soft tiptoes of the children as they sneak up to scare their fellow classmates, half asleep, half awake. I look through the car window and find birds, free and alive, flapping their wings and causing jealousy to build up in other humans who, like me, wish they could fly in their dreams and never be stopped. Everything whizzes past like a ticking clock, cruel, and yet fair.
I want to open the window and feel the air against my red cheeks, but it's cold and I'll catch the flu again, I don't want that. It bothers me that nature can be restricted like this, if you don't do something that seems natural then you'll be safe. But then, you are expected to do unatural things which you never dreamed of doing. I think of these things every morning, it has grown into a routine. Waking up, drinking tea, watching the flame from the heater slowly rise up into water particles and condense somewhere on a cold surface.
Then the car, and the birds, and the people, all the same every day, yet with different expressions. They dance, they laugh,
sometimes they cry. I wonder if they notice that a person sits in a car and watches them every day, witnessing their little lives
and wondering if they're okay.

I'm strange that way, and I always wonder if people think the same way I do, but for sure I don't regret
looking at the world like this. It's a part of me I've been born with, I never plan to lose it.

I cut into my misery
The blade skims across my arm
Nothing could mend my teenage angst
But this self inflicted harm

Cutting and scraping
Until Iíve reached the bone
Why wonít you acknowledge me?
I feel so alone

The reflection I see haunts me
It drives me insane
I hate myself so much
I deserve to feel this pain
I wrote this poem in two days. They were not particularly good days either... I think if you read it, you will understand what itís about.

In the dark
Search the stars
On this moonless cloudy night
For the magic
Of the elves
As they play the glimmering light
Like a top
Like a song
Those who can see all delight
In the whispered lighting fancies they behold.

Itís the elves
Who control
The light thatís in the dark
And their magic
That we see
With each beating of our heart
So look up
In the night
Leave the city find a park
And loose your conscience in the magic of the elves
This is the prize promised for getting my 666th pageview. the prize goes to xxkorinxx, (thank you, I hope you're not disapointed in the poem.)

After my first disasterous experience trying to follow a pattern of tablet weaving I decided to make my own.

A commission by *Laerad (Yay! Thank you!!)

Tablet-woven belt with a threaded-in pattern. The ends are tapered a little bit into a single tassel. 22 4-hole tablets were used to make it.

The design was based on one that *Laerad found online here: [link]

This was so much fun to make! It was a nice change to be weaving with thicker wool again. I tend to go for lighter yarns when tablet weaving, but the worsted weight wool looks so awesome woven this way.

My husband was getting tired of taking boring pictures of textile just lying around so I'm trying to spice them up a bit for the poor man, lol :) Thus the two pottery pieces which have absolutely nothing to do with the belt.

Thank you so much for looking!

I drew this in a friends yearbook. it was across two pages, which were seperate colors, which is why there's that line through the middle and the slight variation in color tone for the two sides.

Hi, I know that this is an old pic, but some people
always tell me to put a better quality version at
deviant, cause the old one was very bad! This is
also to say thanks to all of you that were my friends
here, at deviant. I hope you like this drawing and
my future drawings!
Thanks for the 500 hits you gave me! Iīll try to paint
it before the 1000 hits!
See Y@!!!
