I’ve been inspired to get back to blogging. It’s been awhile and you may have forgotten me. So I’ll start with some introductions..
Let me introduce the newest member of my loom family. I’m one of those people that is always saying “one loom/spinning wheel is plenty. I mean you can only use one at the same time, right?” while falling to temptation when that “oh! what a neat loom” shows up.
This oldie came from a local auction last week. She’s sure had some hard times!
There will be some modifications and some repairs, but I had fun weaving off the warp. Someday I may be able to trace the history. Initial research places her around 70 years old. With a weaving width of just 16″, she will be reserved for scarves, towels, and other narrow projects.
2019 brought in more introductions – sheep, an antique Canadian Production Wheel (what’s one more!), additions to the day lily collection,
and …. best of all .. a new great-grandson!
