This blog started in January of 2011 as a 365 day project of creativity and using the otherwise unusable: paper crafts, jewelry, sewing, fiber art, pottery, and wherever else I might be led.
It is really now what I would call a journey blog.
My mom ordered these books with a variety of kumihimo braiding patterns and there is a lovely flat braid that I have been working on....but mine is lumpy, not flat, and seems to be slightly turning like a helix. I suspect that the flat MUST be done with all the same type of fiber although differing colors, and the one I have in process is two differing fibers. I will post a picture tomorrow morning (pooh on my camera battery late at night) and then try the same pattern with a couple of different samples to see if I can figure it out.
