Back Again

No....this isn't the same picture as last week!  I took this picture this morning as I walked up the path at the Museum of Appalachia.  That's the Loom House on the right....only, I wasn't in there today!  I had finished weaving the last four placemats last week, and got the Rocker Loom all ready for the winter season.  My plan today was to be at the Peter's Cabin.
  It was such a nice day (76 degrees!) that I sat on the porch.  I took my little Inkle Loom with me and I was ready for the kids to arrive.  There were six or seven big yellow buses with lively 4th Graders that unloaded out front!  We'll finish up the Anderson County Days tomorrow.

  The Tuesday Weavers have come up with some great ideas for ornaments to make for the Foothills Show.  The tree ornaments using half circles needed to be blanket stitched on the edge to give it just the right look.  My machine does a great job with metallic thread, and I got my "homework" finished last night!  I'll let the ladies fold and embellish them!
  I need to get the huck placemats finished before the show....we want those shelves to look good, right?  I'll see what I can get done in the next few days.

Happy Weaving!

If I'm thinking correctly you have a Bernina which does a nice blanket stitch and likes metallic thread.
