This week's friday five are themed around threads/weaving/fibre art - I'm inspired for a bit of fiber art this weekend with the weather heading for winter warmies...! I find that crafts involving wool are gathered up in armfulls from their storage places of last year and braught out with new zeal as the cool weather invites. Some of the following works of art might inspire you to new projects this weekend xx
This new to me website, Songs of Light is a beautiful visual diary of nature...I am especially inspired by these stunning web images!
An ethereal weaving project found here.
The stunning art of Anne Lindberg found via Design Milk is amazing in its diversity and detail - these are fine threads of cotton - check out more of her work!
A place to purchase contempory weaving and timber art found here
These beautiful woven cushions found via Design Milk
Work here at weave+wonder this week has been all about this...
And so I thought it much better to linger in the weekend-wonder a little longer...memories of stunning weather, beautiful coastline, contented children and adventure! Pure weekend bliss...remembered on a day when the view outside is a little grey....
With the IT overload going on around here lately, it is just as well I have these fun subjects to photograph to balance my brain!
Apologies for blog-silence over the last week - we lost our hard drive midweek and have been climbing our way back to accessability ever since!
I am deep in the land of website building, holiday class planning and newsletter drafting as well as planning w+w parties and running a household - no wonder I am exhausted!
Here are some snaps of our happenings over the last week....
I think my sheer delight in mothers day this weekend was electrified by the stunning weather! Simple pleasures became a celebration of beauty under the radient blue sky and comforting warmth of the sun - there was such a strong call to be outside!
Highlights for me included a crisp morning trip to the flower markets - the colour + texture, oh my! Cozy-white snuggles in bed peppered with enthusiastic gift-giving!
Time to celebrate the beautiful women who are my legacy, and be celebrated by those I hope to leave this legacy to...
Its Mother's day this weekend and only fitting that some of our inspiration for the week is focused on some creative ideas to make with your children to mark the occasion...or just to enjoy some 'together' time!
:: I am absolutely besotted with this blog called Still. A stunningly artful way of noticing and making simple nature collections into grand statements of beauty! Perhaps you might like to gather your collections from a weekend wandering and play...and do take a look at the site, I promise it will take your breath away!
:: And finally, as you are languishing in all that is family and motherhood on the weekend, don't forget to keep your camera handy! Here's a dreamy site full of stunning images, capturing the beauty and imagination of children!
Happy Mother's Day xx
