Ah, Sunday! The end of another fun crafting weekend with family. It is always sad when it is over, but the memories linger. We sure do have fun.

My own tastes fall more to knitting as a primary hobby. While I have tried weaving on a rigid heddle loom, I can honestly say it didn't 'stick.' I still have my rigid heddle looms (3 of them) and I may return to that craft at some point, but my focus has always been knitting. And lately I have been doing more crocheting - a craft that seems to be growing in popularity. More on my crocheting efforts in another post.

The loom my sample is on is a table tapestry loom that I purchased about 5 years ago. Something back then appealed to me about the craft. I remember the seller had a beautiful - partly woven - picture of a tree and the sky - a landscape. The whole tapestry process was reminiscent of my years doing needle point. I enjoyed that as well. But the loom sat idle for some time. The last 5 years have been too busy to devote much time to learning a new craft.
