Loom is ready to go

Just to thank my DD for my new loom.  It's all put together and ready to do.

This is an Ashford 28# loom so I can do quite a lot of things with it.  Got some cotton yarn in today and ready to go.


Until later...

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello, dear readers :)

Hope you all are enjoying Thanksgiving weekend.

A few things going on now.  CLEANING!  

It's a dirty word, right? LOL



Mr. Inkle is on standby.  Finally figured out how this works.  Took me a while.  I think I understand. (?) LOL


I received a shipment from Halcyon Yarn to make some placemats.  Let me tell you that the thread is sweet. Juicy.



Now, for the surprise that hasn't happened yet, another loom!  Still waiting for some parts and then I can put it together.  It's a floor loom!


Doesn't look like much, does it?  But it will make 28" in width...so, so nice.

I also ordered two more towel kits and hopefully it won't take me too long to make them as Christmas gifts.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Have a blessed day.

Until later...

Get out the Bengay!

Hello, dear readers :)

If anyone could have told me my muscles would be screaming today, I would have ignored it.  It's worse today.  You bet.

So with what energy I had left I managed to warp my Cricket and have been playing with a pinwheel pattern.  It's not perfect yet.



I'm ready to take a nap now.  Muscles are in over drive.  Phew!

Until later...

A very long journey

Hello, dear readers :)

Well, I am finally home after a month of visiting and 6 days on the road.  I hate to fly.  

My daughter is on her way home to NY after bringing me home.  I know I feel like I'm wiped out and she's on jet lag besides.

It was a great trip and wouldn't you know that my pxs didn't come out, except for 2.  My daughter has a bunch of pxs that I'll have to wait for, so I can post some.



This px is going to Rhinebeck, NY fiber fair (fantastic) over the Hudson River.

I did receive one part of an order that when I get organized, I'll post them.  I have so much to do....

Need some sleep.

Until later...

Not enough warmth

Hello, dear readers :)

I just couldn't imagine that I'd be sitting here at my sister's dining room table, looking outside and it's freezing c-o-l-d!  It's supposed to be 21 overnight.  This is cold.

I haven't even taken many pictures I've wanted because I've been too dang busy.

Remember I was waiting for the surprise from UPS?  Well, I got half the order and have no clue when the other half will arrive.  I hope it's sooner rather than later. Hopefully, I find my camera before I leave to try to take some pxs.

Hope everyone is nice and warm.

Catch you on the flip side.

Until later...

Too Cold

Hello, dear readers:)

Today the temperature is 38 degrees!!!!!  IT'S COLD!

I thought I'd have the UPS truck stopping at the door for the surprise, but alas, nothing yet.  It's been 2 weeks already!

When it finally does arrive, I'll show it to you :)

Until later...putting more covers on the bed.....brrrrrrrrrr
