"I had a dream"

I actually woke up feeling awake the other morning, and it was due to a dream. (and the fact that I had an early night and the kids slept all night...) The resounding voice in my head posed this question to me..."What are you, the dash or the space?" Initially I thought Wha'? but then I was blown away by it. In a dashed line there are two marks, a visible mark and the invisible one... the space in between.

I leave you with this to ponder too... Are you the dash or the space?

Arrghhhh.... I have too many things I want to do!

I have just purchased a 16 shaft loom, which I have fondly named Lucy Loom, and have great intentions for.... but currently don't quite have the space to set her up. She is currently sitting in two parts, one in my room, and the other in my 90cm X 2.5m light-well which doubles as my studio space/storage space... but there MUST be a way!

I have also just made a tiny bear (which my husband says looks more like a frog) by weaving using my pin-board, some pins, and wool, and backing it with my 'tractors' fabric. The concept is there but the end result needs a little more refining...

I have also brought a potholder loom, upon which I have made about 9 potholders so far.... mastering the hounds tooth pattern and plain weave... now to take the potholders to a new dimension! Where? Well to places potholders have rarely been I hope... I was actually thinking of sewing them together and make some funky stuff out of them.

BUT it is not merely looms looming on my horizon! My grandmothers knitting machine is going to come out of the cupboard!

My passing thought... Lucy Loom is going to kick butt!
