Finding craft supplies in the French countryside has proven to be not so easy. I can find paint, pens and yarn so I've made do with those resources. The other day I found a couple of wood blocks in the big yard waste pile which will presumably be burned at some point. I decided to salvage them for a little weaving project. You can make a loom by wrapping yarn tightly around the block. Then weave whatever pattern you like onto the frontside with various yarn remnants. In the end, you will have a sweet little art piece for your dresser or mantle.
