Crazy as a Loom

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Plugging away.

Still fighting the sinus headache, even on an antibiotic.   Maybe it's the impending storm.
Whatever it is, it is not amusing.

I tried to focus on something else.
How about Christmas placemats???

I drank some hot tea, took some Alleve, and made two sets of four.

I cut a lot of fabric.  I'm going to do some with red fabric, and some with green.

Of course, someone thinks it is quite a comfy spot for a NAP.

Michelle and I continued with her new loom, getting the warp threaded and beamed on, and playing with the friction brake until we got it just right.

She is ready to WEAVE her first warp on her very OWN loom.
I am excited for her.  She is already planning future projects.

After she had picked out thread, we put the loom in her vehicle, and she took it home.

I remember when I bought my first loom.  It was exhilarating.  I dreamt about it, and when I wasn't weaving, I was counting the time until I could.
I have had a lot of looms, and I have woven a lot of stuff over the years.
But I still get fevered about it.  I still wake up in the night, with ideas about what I want to weave next.


To be able to give someone else this excitement  is priceless.
It surely is.

I am green with envy. I want to get a loom now but I think I only have room for one of your Hip to be Square looms.

A girl can dream.

I know if I even attempted to weave that I would be hooked on it. I think every girl should try it at least once.
