Crazy as a Loom

Second try

Let me just say that it wicked annoying to work on a post, only to discover that suddenly it is gone.
But I suppose that there isn't much sense in crying about it, is there?
Let me try again.
Hear that noise?  My teeth grating.

L and I wove a 4'x6' black caterpillar rug, that is already on its way to Colorado.

Do you have any idea how hard Sydney works?  She is the official cat who weights rugs down while fringe is tied.
Never mind that sometimes parts of her get in the way of tying the fringe.

This rug will surely brighten up a room.

This sure looks like spring, but I'm no fool, I have seen these covered in snow.....thus their name.

We took a break, and walked up the road. It was very windy, but warm.

The hamlet of Kingsbury is mostly rural farmland.  There is a general store, four churches, a diner, a couple of machine shops, a couple of pumpkin enthusiasts, a sawmill, and Crazy as a Loom.

It is generally quiet and pretty laid back.

It is a good place to be.  Whatever star led me here, I am thankful.

I just love those caterpillar rugs. They always make me smile. Big!
I would like to take the time to thank you for having this blog. Each time I log on and read what you have to say and see your pictures, I am that much more encouraged to work at my loom. (I shouldn't say work, it has been so much fun)
I am still practicing. I want to work with it every day, but that doesn't always get to happen. At any rate, you have been a big influence on my weaving so far. Thank you!

Very nice...very real and down to earth. Love your kitty companion. Do you put a disclaimer that any rugs bought will have cat fibers woven inside?????
