|Robin, holly and ivy from my nature diary|
I've made a good start on the Rocky Road kumihimo braid.... as promised here are pictures of it in the early stages. Also a short video clip with shows the marudai in use.

The photos show the very start of braiding. After working a short length with just the threads, I start to slide beads down and they are held within the braid by using the weighted bobbins and the counterbalance bag. Here's a video clip of me working on the marudai.
I will post more photos and I go along and in the meantime I wish you all a wonderful Christmas.
