I haven't eaten meat in over a year. But hot dogs, well, despite what the evidence says, they just aren't meat in my book. Don't tell me any different. I am not listening...
You know the deal......nananananana.
And the hot dogs from the Dog Shack.......dear Lord, they are addictive.
But I didn't have them.
I got myself back to the studio, and had this instead.
It was delish, too. I
While I have been weaving placemats out of the toe ends of Solmate Socks, I have been stressing about having enough of them looped to make 4 matching placemats. Then the socklady said something to me in an email, and the light went on. Duh.
If you are familiar with the socks that produce the sock waste that I make rugs and placemats and potholders out of, you know that their motto is, "because life is too short for matching socks". You can see them HERE.
So, she suggested that I make mismatched placemats. Oh, heart be still.
It doesn't take much to get me going, obviously.
And this, of course, takes the worry out of trying to match them. In fact, it will be the most fun of all to NOT match them.
On the potholder front, the bags came today. I am waiting on the brander, to mark each loom on the side, and I went to the printer today to get the header card started.
But then, something else occurred to me.
What about this???
With a ball of thinly cut fabric, one could make sweet little squares that could then be sewn into bags, quilts, or anything else you could imagine.
I have to think more on this one.
I guess I should get this project on track before I go off on another tangent.
But tangents are such fun.
I want to thank everyone for all the suggestions of names for this little loom. They were great. You are an incredibly prolific bunch, and I totally appreciate your input.
But like I said, when it rings true, it rings LOUD.
The right name practically JUMPED off the page......I could hardly stand it. When I read it to my husband, even though he had suggested his own creation, he knew this one was right.
So thank you, Martha. I couldn't email you back, because your email wasn't available.
And though there were several I really liked a lot, yours was perfect.
Crazy as a Loom is proud to present the "Hip to Be Square Looper Loom". Using recycled wood, this 9" loom is made just for the looper waste from Solmate Socks. It doesn't get any greener.
I have the "list" of all of you who want one, and as soon as they are branded, and packaged, I will send out an email to you, and give you payment options.
And again, if you ask me a question, I can't answer you if your email isn't available.
Sylvia.....email me with your address, and I will get a price for shipping to Germany.
UPDATE: You all heard me kvetching about my experience with Prilosec, and the months of rebound reflux that made my life hell when I stopped taking the Prilosec. Well, 4 months later, my body has adjusted. My stomach is happy. My colon is happy. I don't have any more reflux. I sleep better. I feel better. I am not bloated and sluggish. I did it. I got OFF Prilosec, and it didn't kill me. But more than that, I was right. I didn't need it. It was making me feel awful. I listened to my 'gut', no pun intended, and got the truth. Just so you know. Doctors aren't always right.
I should probably mow the lawn tomorrow, but I think there's a loom calling. You hear it, right?
