I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

i'm warped, in a good way

Look what I did. I got my loom warped and started weaving. This is supposed to be 8 napkins for my sister for Christmas. Think I can get them finished? I'm thinking probably next Christmas. After I got the warp on and the header woven I figured I should probably get back to things that had to be done for this Christmas. I did sit down and do a couple of inches between projects in the sewing room. I just couldn't help myself.

I remember having a little loom when I was a girl . . . I am in awe that you've gotten all this done. Keep sharing your progress *s*

The hard part is done - enjoy your weaving project. I have a LeClerc - haven't used it in YEARS, but hey, SB is in kindergarten now so the time is coming.
Cheers!

Oh my, this is such fine weaving that you're doing. Looks like you're working with a gazillion threads. I bet the napkins will be beautiful when they're finished and I'm sure your sister will love them.
I would like to wish you and your family a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.

Your project looks fabulous! I'm a tad bit jealous because I've always wanted to learn to spin and weave. I will look forward to watching your progress!!

I've always wanted to have a go at a loom. I played with a children's loom last year but got very odd widths on the same fabric. I think I need instruction.
