A Different Kind of Weaving

In the recent SpinOff magazine there is an article about weaving dried plant materials. It so inspired me , I showed it to my daughter. Well, it just so happened that Marsel had saved and dried some lavender from her garden a few weeks ago , so we went to work! Using the stalks, we removed the flower heads (which will go into a sachet later) we then proceeded to warp up my rigid heddle loom. We all took turns enjoying the easy rhythm of weaving. (Except for Abigail, who was napping.)
It will make a wonderful trivet and give off its scent each time a hot dish is placed upon it! A very satisfying conclusion!
