27 July 2014 - Kumihimo Sunny Spiral

Another braid design from Beth Kemp's book
"Twist, Turn & Tie 50 Japanese Braids"

I had difficulty keeping the tension right so the spiral isn't even
but this is better than my first effort that came out mostly flat.

26 July 2014 - Kumihimo in Key Pattern

Another kumihimo experiment, creating a traditional key pattern
that's found as a design element in many cultures around the world.
It was sunny this afternoon, creating rainbows
through the crystals hanging in the window.

20 July 2014 - Kumihimo (Japanese Braiding)

Beth Kemp's book "Twist, Turn & Tie 50 Japanese Braids" is really excellent.
It was a bonus to find the card Kumihimo disk
supplied in a pocket at the back of the book.
I used DMC cottons because I already had some.

5 July 2014 - Rainbow at Glenelg Beach

A cold, windy, drizzly day to visit beautiful Glenelg beach - rewarded with a rainbow :-)
