Update on Bubbalee.
From the antics that went on in the yard several weeks ago, the anticipated arrival of her babies is the last week of March. Her belly is looking large.
See what I mean???
She is NOT going up in the loft though, and we think that is probably because it is not "hidden" enough for her to have her babies there. Which is kind of upsetting, because I hate to think of her having them under the porch, or somewhere else cold and damp.
I wish we could get her to come into the inside porch, but I am not sure how we would manage that.
I guess, once again, I will have to accept my limitations.
And while we are talking about acceptance...........
Yeah, ya gotta love northeast New York.
I did a little weaving, trying to finish up a warp.
I think it's time to weave a "summer line". Phooey on the snow, that's what I say.
Then, in spite of the weather, my husband and I drove about an hour to pick up a loom.
Yup, another one.
This is where I raise my hand.
Hi, my name is Hilary, and I am a LOOM addict.
Made by Schacht, it is a 36" wide, 4 harness, 6 treadle jack.
Bought in the early 80's, in Colorado, it has sat unused since 1992. It just needs a little cleaning.
I bought this loom from the same lady that I bought the Weaver's Friend from. I was quite surprised today when she handed me the crank to the Weaver's Friend I bought a year ago........or was it two years?
Ah, time sure flies when you're having fun.
These shuttles came with it.
Fourteen shuttles in all. Heart be still.
You can NEVER have enough shuttles. And antique shuttles are the best of all.
You done good, Mom.
