Weaving, books and hummingbirds

I finally sat still long enough to take some photos of my weaving experiments. An experienced weaver would probably laugh their head off at these, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm experimenting with different types of fibers and tensions.

I got a woodcarving book from the library so I need to find my tools for that. It has some simple beginner's projects I can tackle.

And I got a book on making handbags that has some awesome ideas in it.

I'm almost well enough to get back into the swing of things. Today really helped. It was warm outside so I sat on the patio and read for a few hours, and the heat helped thaw out my head cold. I saw a hummingbird today so I went ahead and filled up the hummingbird feeder. The adjoining apt. used to have one, but they moved recently and I just now realized the feeder in their yard was gone. I didn't see the bird again today, but it takes them a few days to get used to a new object being in their territory. I'm sure they'll find it soon enough.

Hi! My name is Mei. Your blog is such an inspiration.
I recently purchased a book on braiding and yet to experiment them in wire. I have done some before but not based on this new book.

Wire is so much fun to work with. I hope you get to enjoy lots of wire creations.
