Weaving & Reading

These are placemats hot off my smaller loom.  They need to be cut apart and then they need their hems.    There is even a potholder in there!  I love weaving!
 Still reading this book.  I am thinking I was made for a bigger plot of land and a more simple life.....this totally appeals to me.....growing most of my own vegetables and fruits, having a few hens for homegrown eggs....of course I would need to be vegetarian because I would never be able to eat the pets :o)
I have several more books like this that I took out from the library and am enjoying them greatly.  I have all kinds of things growing.  I found this great site called Sprout Robot where you plug in your zip code and it will tell you what you can grow and when to start - so cool.  I now have more seeds to start growing!

Take a look at Tami and Ginny's blogs to see more great things people are working on.

The weaving looks fantastic! I just finished that book a month or so ago. Most of it was really good.

I love to see more weavers in Yarn Along! I finally did warp my loom but it is still sitting there waiting for me to start weaving my bath mat. I agree with having more land and a simple life!

yay for weaving!! My mom is a weaver, so it always makes me happy to see woven projects, and your placemats look like they're going to be amazing. :)
