GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING . . .





The first thought that may cross your mind is the woman has gone over the top! And you well could be accurate about that. But not right now and yes I know Thanksgiving was 4 days ago but I was out of commission. That head cold I wrote so smugly about a week ago Sunday launched itself on Monday despite my elderberry efforts and became the "every five years illness " that I seem to get whether I need it or not.The upside was even as this event progressed I continued the elderberry and I know it has lessened the symptoms. The downside was even so I had to keep on with chores and regular life and this unwelcome "gift" caused a large drain on my energy. Which meant little more than what needed to be done got done.  So now I will post what I had intended and also say we as a people of this country and other countries need  be thankful for those things we hold dear daily as well as on special occasions.

I will also post a few more loom photos. And before it is shipped off to the lucky recipient I will get a final photo for you.






This photo is taken from the rear of the loom looking forward toward the heddles and reed.
                                    




The next photo shows the reed clearly at the top. The center warp threads are each securely thorough a heddle each and the warps threads on either side await their turn.                                
                                               


    Thanks for the visits I see from a lot of folks around the USA and other countries. Glad you stopped by and I hope you will stop by again. As I get back to my usual energetic  self I will get more post up about what is going on at the farm.

  2. Ugh, I can sympathize with your recent "sickiness." Like you, those germies don't get me but once in a blue moon, but when they do . . . well, I feel your pain. Hope you're definitely feeling better each day.

    Weaving has always fascinated me, but (no doubt luckily) I've never had room to think about having a loom and going for it. I do enjoy reading about and seeing your projects though. Keep 'em comin'!

    1. Love getting your comments Mama Pea! I know you get it as we are symbiotic. You don't need a large space to weave even if it is a floor loom. I will be a real enabler here and sai "Mama Pea go to the Woolery shop and check out both the table and rigid heddle looms. " All my looms are second or third or more hand. So I am sure we could fix you up with a homeless loom.
