A new recorder case!

My son is learning to play the recorder in music class. I thought the plastic case it came in was not all that aesthetically pleasing so I decided to weave him one on the inkle loom. Came out great IMHO. He likes it too and told me that it was a little annoying today because everyone kept touching it and it was embarrassing. I think that is high praise from a bunch of nine year olds. Chalk one up for mom! 20131025-234239.jpg20131025-234248.jpg

More of our popular Pom Pom hats and Helga Jackets ready for the store tomorrow.

Denim and flowers.

We had a pretty heavy frost/freeze here in VT last night but covering flowers and tender veggies will hopefully extend the growing season a while longer. Speaking of growing - the denim rug order grew over the last few weeks until weaving was completed this morning and I was able to take her off the loom. Here she is in all her denim splendidness. Such a treat to see how the finished cloth looks when it rolls off the storage beam. Will get a final measurement once it has time to relax now that it isn't under loom tension anymore.

G & P's rug.

Today I was able to thread and start weaving a denim rag rug order. Love this old Villa Handcrafts loom. I learn something new about her every time I work on a different project. Today I figured out the best way (for now) to position myself for threading and sleying. Beautiful old maple and great craftsmanship. A joy and a pleasure to work on.
