woven gift sets

My latest experiment in weaving on a cardboard loom has been to make some bookmarks. I guess that gift sets of a bookmark and a coaster might be quite popular. After all, most of us like to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee (or other beverage!) while we read. So here is the first gift set (which I gave to my Mum on her birthday)!

I've got a lot of wool, given to me by friends and relatives and bought very cheaply in second hand shops. So I'm likely to make a lot more of these gift sets, some of which may end up in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop.

I'm running a blog giveaway to win a pdf of my book Bougainvillea Dancing, poetry, prose and photos inspired by Malawi. Find out more and enter here.

I used to do a lot of this at one time - it needs patience, which I no longer have in abundance.

Like the rustic look a lot. Am a rustic/wonky quilter, myself.

I recently read that Malawi is quite a fine place to visit as a tourist.
