Crazy as a Loom

OOPS.

I can't believe that it's been a month since I've posted. Time just flies by.

I love autumn, and I love to bake.  It seems the perfect time to start making soups, and that rhubarb
I froze this summer was calling to me.


It makes the best crisp.
And bread is a snap, when you've got the pellet stove fired up, nothing makes it rise so well.


 I'm taking a break from baby wraps for a bit.  This is the last of the Mermaid wraps.  I hope to be taking it to the Hudson Mohawk Weaver's Guild show in November.



This is by my driveway.



One of my favorite maples.  I just love the gold/yellow/oranges.  In fact, it's one of the warps I love the best.




There's this weaving draft that I have lusted over for some time.  But I don't have a computerized loom, so I thought it was out of reach for me.
Then I decided to try it anyway.   It took two hours to peg 110 dobby bars, and they drag on the floor.
I wasn't at all sure it was even going to work.



I was thrilled to find out that it DOES work.


Is it feathers?  Or trees?


I don't know but I love it.

So I decided that pegging dobby bars is not that much fun, and since I really don't want to buy another loom, I ordered the Compudobby from AVL for my loom.  It won't be here until Christmas, or after, but wow, it's exciting still!!!!

I am blessed with my family, and it's a special joy when my youngest grand comes to visit.

Here she is giving me the look.  She had instructed me to STOP taking her picture.



But a little later, she forgave me.



Life is good.   I'll try to be back sooner.  I'm amazed that anyone is still out there reading.


Welcome to my world.
