So, I have a new Baby Wolf loom. Ok, well, it's new to me. :-) I love it. I haven't had a chance to weave on it yet. She (or he) doesn't have a name yet either. It's an older model and the back beam doesn't come off, although, I'm not sure it can't come off. I'm wondering if I can convert it.....but that's for a future time. wink wink
Here are photos - back and front:
I warped the Baby Wolf, but, I messed up. I started, then stopped, then started another day. When I started, I began with 4,3,2,1. When I started again, I started with 1,2,3,4. For anyone who weaves, you'll know, that's not a good thing. I found this only after I threaded ALL the heddles...and then, as I was checking, I found a thread dead center that didn't get threaded. Well, I gotta go back and re thread all of THOSE heddles along with the first set that I did initially so the first ones match the rest of the heddles. Geesh. Dumb mistakes I just keep on making. Don't know why I'm not more careful and conscious! It's my own fault, it's not hard or anything. Goodness. I just don't pay enough attention. Oh well.
Tomorrow I'm going to Joann's Fabric and Crafts because they have Simplicity patterns on sale. I will find something for a pullover blouse, that doesn't require stretch fabrics. I also want a simple jacket pattern. I have one, but am kind of looking for something different, but may end up sticking with the one I already have. I figure, if nothing else, while I'm laid up (I have to have some surgery in September), I can hand stitch the pieces together.....it's something I can do that won't cause me issues with healing.
Then I'm meeting up with my friend - the one that had things go really rough for her a few weeks ago. She's back from Australia and we are going to go hit a few stores up and have lunch. I'll get to do my stuff first, then when she's done with tennis, we'll meet up and do a few things. It's so good to have her back! I certainly missed her.
Today I got to spend time with my grand daughter. I haven't seen her in a month, and I have really missed her. She gives me SUCH joy - I just can't explain it. She has been sick, and yet, she had a really good day today. Lots of grins (she has her two bottom front teeth), I got lots of cuddles and hugs, I got lots of time with her playing, and I got to feed her twice. I also helped with a nebulizer treatment, which she needs for her breathing. I can hardly believe she's almost 8 months old. She's pulling herself up, crawling, and doing all kinds of great stuff. I just love her to pieces!
Ok, well, I'm tired, and hopefully I will sleep past 3 a.m. tomorrow morning.........the last 3 mornings have been quite rough. Project Runway on tonight............might have to tape it because I'm pretty tired.
