I can’t believe that it’s been over a month since I blogged. I’ve been pretty busy with my graphic design, art, art project and weaving. I just refurbished a vintage Leclerc Dorothy tabletop loom (left). It was free and all it needed was a little TLC. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will soon.
I also bought a vintage Leclerc Nilus 45” floor room. It’s huge and my whole house is now officially studio. It was a great buy and came with a bench plus lots of extras. Plus, whoever had it before must’ve woven rugs because the beater is weighted. Yay! I am waiting for a new brake coil and heddles. I also need to clean it up and wash the aprons and then I will take it for a short run.
Last, but not least, I bought a spinning wheel. It’s much harder than looks, but I’m hoping with regular practice that I will get the hang of it. Now, if I could only spin straw into gold, so that I am able to pay for all these toys! 🙂
