Crazy as a Loom

What I love to do

So I got the sectional beam for my AVL, but unfortunately, there is no place to attach the tension box.
AVL has an attachment that you can put on the back of the loom, but it is made with a groove that fits the AVL tension box.
I have a Leclerc tension box, and that was a problem.

Luckily, I have access to a handy man, the same guy that built my porch and has done a hundred other jobs for me.
He built me a frame, out of hard wood, that attaches in the exact same place as the AVL extension would go, but this one works with my Leclerc tension box.



So now, all I have to do is pound all the sectional pieces into the beam, and we are ready to go.
I haven't decided yet what my first project will be.
Decisions, decisions.

It is brutally hot in the northeast.  Even the studio, which normally maintains its cool even in the midst of summer, was unbearable.
I managed to finish these two rugs, reminding me once again about what I love to do.
First, a container rug in BLUES.
 

Then a container rug in shades of RED



But right now, I am staying close to the AC.
Got my book.
Got my iced tea.

I'm good.
