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!
