I bought a loom!!!
I now own a loom. A really nice loom.
Weavers say that your loom finds you. This whole weaving thing has come to me in such a weird way. One day, a couple of months ago, at the local thrift store I found a little table loom for $3. That afternoon I had an email from the local arts council about a weaving class nearby. I signed up for the class and loved it. This past Saturday I was talking to Wesley about my class and I told her that I was going to have to buy a loom, but had no idea how I could afford one or where I would find one. As I was talking to her, I opened up an email from my teacher asking me if I wanted to buy the loom I was using. I finished my first two scarves today, worked about 6 hours and loved the peace and rhythm and tactile beauty of the cloth.
Now to figure out how to combine weaving and clay.
My houses took a new turn on Saturday. The ones I have been making may be some of the last of their kind. I have some new thoughts and I have a loom, haha! Once I get my scarves off the loom I'll show you!
Have a happy week.........
