Crafts are always a big part of island life. I bring lots of materials and then sit back and see where things go. The last time we went out the girls made lots of sea glass jewelry which I still wear. Weaving was the passion this year.
They began by just weaving little bags. They quickly wove them, felted them, and turned them into special cases to hold the perfect stones from thunder hole.
Hels became inspired to make wall hangings out of yarn and nature. Nels helped her make the frames out of sticks and driftwood. She used yarn for the warp and then seaweed, feathers, goldenrod, shells, and trash for the weft.
Here is the start of a small one.
I'm enjoying my new porch decorations!
Moonlight over the ocean is my favorite although I was proud of her for thinking about the trash and making a comment about it through art.
