Woven Crosses



This bookmark woven with crosses is among many made on a Selma weaver's loom. Isn't it beautiful?

They are perfect for Good Friday when Christians remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for the sins of the world! His death on the cross at Calvary is one of the most holy days of the year, followed by Easter, the most joyous holy day when we celebrate our Savior's resurrection.

Anyway, I was lucky enough to stop by the Weaver's house and see her magnificent loom and take this photo. You can see more of her crosses and other work at her Alabama Weaver blog. She is learning new designs all the time and shares her talents with local children by teaching them how to weave during Art Camp.
