My loom

This is the first rug on my rigid heddle loom. I have several inches woven in white. I'm doing plain weave and just getting used to the process. It went pretty fast so far.

Piles of fiber

I spent a lot of time this weekend carding up Romney fiber to spin for rugs. I also started weaving the first one. Now I have to decide which colors to spin first. It all carded up bigger than I thought it would. I wished I'd gotten some spun.

I love the bright colors and enjoyed getting the fiber all smooth, fluffy and ready to go.

Hemp habit

I got a bracelet at the yoga studio a while back and I just love it. So I decided I could make some. So I went through my beads and bought some hemp. This week I started creating and I took some pictures of some of the things I made. I made the one above. I like making and wearing the bracelets. They are not typical hemp bracelets and I liked the look of them. They are lots of fun. And still sort of fiber related. LOL I have got to use up some of my bead stash so this is part of that effort.
