I come from a long line of incredible women. My family never lacked for examples worth following of women who pursued careers, became mothers, and also kept up with some sort of artistic trade, even if just for the fun of it.
Last time I went home I was telling my aunt Mago how much I was into the 70s vibe of weaving art and yarn. I asked her if she knew where I could get a one of a kind piece, and she replied "Of course. I will make you one." It is a known fact that my aunt is the best knitter in my family, but it was a pleasant surprise to find out that she also weaves chunky threads, color-blocking yarns, and even uses beads to give texture and color to a beautiful piece of art.
This beauty arrived this week in the mail, and I cannot be more pleased, it is not only a one of a kind, gorgeous piece of art, but it was made with love for me by someone whom I love dearly. It does not get better than that.
On a design note, woven wall hangings are all the rage these days and you can find them handmade all over Etsy, or even machine-made at Target. They are a great way to add interest to any wall, and a great alternative to a picture or painting.
What do you think? Are woven wall hangings for you?
P.S. Gracias Mago, está precioso. Pero me gusta más aún porque es hecho con amor. Muchos besos.
