I've had some severe problems with my old computer, which eventually died, and had to rely on mobile internet for a few months.
A new laptop now sits smiling at my desk. I hope it will serve me faithfully for many years to come.
I'm happy to be back and looking forward to exchange some more crafty ideas with all the lovely people out here !

Aranyakanya's Profile Picture
Aranyakanya
Belgium
Years ago I started drawing my own Christmas and Birthday cards because the cards in the shops were either expensive or not my style. Many people like the drawings, but as I'm not very good with computers or design programs the cards don't look too professional. I'd like to have a pixie-series printed one day. I'm putting them up here to see if there is any interest from the 'outside world', that is, beside my friends and family.

I taught myself card weaving about five years ago and after that I took up a part-time weaving course in Ghent. I'm now in my fourth year and studying South-American inkle weave techniques. I demonstrate card weaving as an iron age reenactor on various living history festivals and in schools. I own a four-shaft Leclerc loom.

Next to weaving and drawing I like photography, especially macro pics of flora and fauna.

Nature is very important for me and this shows in my drawings, my photos and the fibres I work with.

They are well deserved ;) I admire the patience with which you embroidered the whole tissue for the purse, and not just the borders. It's almost like weaving with a needle :)

Yes, You have right, that is like a weaving with a needle. It takes many, many hours (about 72-75 h only for embroidery) but the effect is worth every minut which I spend on it :)

It's a lovely craft ! And you can take it on the bus, train and anywhere you like. When I want to weave something like this, I have to stay at home with my loom ;)
