    My sewing room - quick clean up

    Going to try and post a picture...fingers crossed....here I go ...My folks come over once a year for a visit. Friday evening they sent me an email saying they were going to stop by for an hour at 9am on Sat. to bring by a loom thread holder for my warping board that my dad made for me. After being very tired from working all day I decided to clean in the morning...WOW...talk about flying around for 2 hours cleaning...the biggest chore was my sewing room. I was so impressed that when they left I quilted a pillow for the hubby...here are the pictures from this morning...after I sewed all day yesterday. Love it...I need company that go into my sewing room more often. I clean better under pressure.

    It looks wonderful! Wanna come do mine, next?

    My sewing area is set up in a shed, which still holds some furniture, which won't fit in our (severely downsized) house. Still trying to unload . . . uh, SHARE some of it, with the kids.

    You did a great job. I too work better and get more done in alot less time when I'm under pressure. Otherwise I tend to dawdle and piddle too much.

    Pristine! Please send them to visit me too, so I can end up with a room like yours. Of course, you'd have to come before them to do some training and demonstration.

    I have a thread holder similar to yours that my Dad made me too. Nifty. What kind of loom do you have? My Dad made my floor loom also and then more recently, someone gave me a rigid heddle table loom. I am curious as to what you weave, what kind of threads you use, and where you get them, locally or on the internet..

Size:  1.20 MBHere is the 22 inch loom my Aunt gave me. I bought it to Harrisburg and they upgraded it to a 6 treadle and added lams. it use to have rope that went directly to the treadles. I have not made anything yet. There are wonderful online classes for 29.00 if interested let me know I will send you info. The online classes are wonderful. you can download the classes or they will send you the disk. I have the that teaches you how to warp the warping board as well as how to set it up. So much more to looming than I ever would have thought.
