Woven Falls
Topic: Other Hobbies

Oh, the joy of looking through huge boxes of old photos with adult children! Many memories, laughs and stories later, I pulled out a couple of art projects from 'w-a-a-a-y' back to share with you.

More than 30 years ago I made this wall hanging for my folks. It is an image of Multnomah Falls in Oregon. I wrapped a metal hoop with yarn then used a needle to string a warp of yarns vertically. This became the base for a tapestry weaving for the background. The falls themselves are in freefall made of a slub yarn. The trees are made in a rag rug style by tying tufts of yarn onto the base and then trimming them to shape. The bridge - an iconic part of the falls view - is crocheted.

Sorry about the quality of the photo as it is a digital pic of a printed snapshot.

I used to do a lot of weaving back in the 70's and may show some more of those projects along the way. I still have a few of them after all these years. I still have my floor loom, too, but haven't had a warp on it since about 1983!
