Happy New Year Wishes...
Best Wishes to you and yours for a Happy, Healthy, Bountiful New Year!
I've been busy catching up on lots of unfinished projects. The new scanner is...well...shall I say...difficult and uncooperative. I need it to work so I can proceed with many website updates...and finish my design of the 2009 LJF Rug Project.
So rather than whine about it while I wait for hubby to perform miracles...I've been working on tidying up around my loom...it has been a storage area for way too long. I've knit a few pair of socks...finally made myself a Christmas stocking...something I've been meaning to do for years! I made hubby's in 1994 and son's in 1996.
And today I painted up a box for my stitching stuff.
I use a beeswax-mineral oil finish on my painted pieces...so as soon as it's dry I'll loading it with all my stitching treasures!
It's amazing how many things I've found under my loom...and NO...I won't show you a picture of that room! I want to get the loom warped to weave some towels. I wove about these 12 years ago and they are just starting to wear out. I remember my son was 6 months old and would sit on my lap and pull on the beater bar...such fond memories!
We live a pretty simple life...but a couple luxuries I enjoy are hand-knit socks and hand woven dish towels.
May you all be blessed...
