Ojo de Dios weaving


The children and I did some weaving today. These are called "Ojo de Dios" or "God's Eyes" and are a great quick and achievable project for kids. It also gives you the chance to sneak in a little history and Spanish lesson as well.


We hung ours as window decorations.


I got carried away with the hypnotic rhythm of it all and did this large one on bamboo sticks from the garden. I used some of Nell's beautiful wool which I think is a perfect showcase for such fabulous wool!

We followed instructions here.
