Making the Hip to Be Square loom kits is only part of the process.
The loopers have to be 'cleaned' before they get put in the kits, two and a half pounds for the regular kit, and 5 lbs for the Rag Rug Kit. Getting this done can be problematic. L and I do NOT have any time available for this task, so we farm it out for other people to do. When we can find them, that is. In spite of the state of the economy, not a whole lot of people out there who NEED the money, are actually willing to work for it, in this instance, anyway. We do have a few who faithfully continue to keep us supplied, and we are grateful.
The cleaning is actually just separating the random threads that get stuck to the loops, and pulling them
Then the loopers look all spiffy, like this, and ready to be part of the Hip to Be Square kit.
The 5 lb and 10 lb looper refills are cheaper, because they still have the threads in them.
On another note, after 2 and a half weeks of misery with this headache, I am back at the doctor this morning, practically begging for anything to make it go away.
So, the consensus was that the antibiotic that has been gnawing at my stomach for the last 8 days, is not the right one.
So now I am on another antibiotic, plus Prednisone, and I had taken what I have to believe are just LOVELY pictures of my sinus cavitites.
I didn't spend a lot of time at the studio today, since I really wanted to just go to sleep.
But while I was there, Miss Smokey aka Also, aka Lucy, was keeping us company. She is very timid, but sweet.
What's up, Smokey girl???
She is a tiny little thing, but she is gaining weight since she went to the vet. She has the loveliest shimmer of silver on the insides of her legs, her belly, and her nose.
I worked on chunky Solmate chair pads.......and decided that back when I asked you all to help me with a name for them, Renew had the best one, so they are "Sweet Bottoms."
Cuz they ARE sweet.
Do you like them?
We decided to go with a black warp, since it makes the colors pop.
I would like to have a stack of these before the show in 2+ weeks.
L thinks I should sell them separately, since some people might want just one or two, and not a whole set of four. She may have a point.
It's good to have feedback, and a second opinion. That is especially true lately, since I feel like my head has been stuffed and packed tightly with cotton balls. My thinking may be a little fuzzy.
But this color moves me, and it doesn't take much thought.
I think they ROCK.
Do you agree??? Now I have to figure out a price per Sweet Bottoms........any ideas???
You know I love all your suggestions.
Oh, and Miss RENEW....send me your mailing address, so I can send you your very own!!!
