Summer's End Keepsake

We've done the "Y" shaped stick - a weaving of yarn and flowers... this time I was thinking of a frame.
A frame for the end of summer's glory, hmmm?

I made my frame with four sticks and jute.

And a lovely yarn that we have around that we dyed and hand-spun ourselves.

Madeleine wanted a heart.  "'Bout this big," says she. 

And she'll take that pretty sky blue.

 So I took some creeper vine, and shaped a heart for her.  Easy enough.

In and out goes the yarn weave, in no particular way or pattern.


This goes to Friday's Nature Table at The Magic Onions for September 16, 2011.
Also connecting here at O.L.M. for Saturday's Artist on September 17.
