"Dreaming of Wales" circular weaving

 
At the Woolfest I went to last Saturday I bought this circular weaving kit from the Threshing Barn stall (www.threshingbarn.com). I have really enjoyed making this as it is something completely different. I really liked this kit as it just provided basic instructions, a photo and some wool so I had the chance to put my own twist on it by adding some more of my own wool. It reminds me of Wales hence my title where we are going camping this year in a few weeks. I have put it on my kitchen wall and my sons love it as they cant wait to go and see some Welsh sheep in real life. We are lucky in that Wales is only an hour and half drive away from where we live..lets hope the weather stays nice.

Oh wow !!! How absolutely fantastic. Truly a work of art that you should be very proud of and should in my eyes be in a gallery and if sold,sold for a fortune. I dont think i have ever seen anything so beautiful since i started blogging. I would just love to own that and look at it every day it is truly as you say 'Wales' I love the beauty of the Welsh coast and this is perfect for it.
