But, we all need to get ready for the Foothills show in November, so rest time might be over. Carol has given me a challenge.....a lady had this purse at Homecoming, and my job is to recreate it.
It converts to a backpack! Cool design, right???
Carol provided three different views, and I worked out a diagram that I'm playing with at the moment. We'll see if I'm successful.
I just so happen to have a placemat warp already on one of the Pups, so I thought I would use that to play with. The example is woven with cloth strips, but I don't have any cut at the moment. I thought this chunky yarn might work, but I'm really not liking the way it looks. It might be time to get out the rag cutter.
While I have it out, I need to cut more strips for the placemat warp at the Museum. I timed that warp just right...the last six mats were supposed to be finished by Sunday evening.....but I ran out of weft!!! I'd like to get that woven and cut off the loom. It will be too chilly to weave out in the Loom House in just a few weeks. I have about twelve inches to go.
A few weeks back, the crew from Southern Weekends visited the Museum of Appalachia. Molly spent some time with me in the Loom House. I finally got to see the clip this morning on the news.
Now....back to my challenge project!!!!
