This drawing features a pair of happy siblings resting on a log after a hot walk in the woods.
It makes me feel appreciative for not only these moments of rest but the fallen trees that provide a comfortable place to rest our legs.
I can remember being a child with hot feet and aching legs that never could keep up with the adults who seemed to be walking three times as fast. A chance to sit was everything -- until it was time to get up again and keep walking.
It was a joy to draw these two happy kids. Thank you to their Mom, Shannon, for giving me the opportunity to draw them!
The Twig Loom is the next loom in this weaving tutorial series.
As I say repeatedly in the video, this is a great project for kids because it comes with a built-in handle!
Choose to weave with t-shirt yarn (tarn) and you will weave faster. Whether with yarn or with tarn, this project will teach you patience!
I hope you enjoy the video, and if you are interested in learning more about making small weavings on interesting looms, check out the Small Weavings Workshop that I will be teaching in September at Spring Bird!
And if you do make a weaving, please let me know what you make and share photos!!!
