Nilo tries cloth weaving.
There's something exquisite about small hands making.
A first try on a cardboard loom. Something about a Southern Cross to this one.
Using a makeshift loom (an old quilting frame with 1cm notches cut) I tied some cords as a guide and wove columns of calico.
I thought the cords would make it easier, but in the end I'm not sure how accurate the thought was.
Once columns and then rows had been woven I cut the cords and pulled them through, releasing this cloth.
I like it alot! It's so soft, that it actually feels wooly. Have to leave for town soon. Back to the construction work. Now there's a stark contrast! Sad that there's no time left to try stitching on this cloth.
