Whole Again!

Yeaaaaaaaaaa!!! Today I reassembled my loom, and she is working fine!

I am so thrilled!!!  I had baggies with doodads, labeled with my names for the parts, and happily, I still understood what I had written on the labels. I had notes on the order in which I took things apart, so I could just reverse the order to reassemble.

I have an ancient laptop that came with the loom. Next up will be to see if I can connect my fairly new Toshiba laptop. The ancient one works, but it is, well, ancient. Plus, the new one has wireless connectivity, and then I can get rid of the external floppy drive. :-)

This is a huge milestone, and makes me very very happy!  Now to decide on what will be the first warp woven in my new loom room.

I know I'm pretty late with this comment, but I'm so happy to see that your loom is back together!! You've done a great job setting up your space and now your loom.

Like you, I eagerly await seeing your first project with the new setup!

Thanks so much for your double weave idea!! I like it!

I'm really glad to hear from people on the Friday night of Labor Day weekend! I was afraid I'd finish weaving over the weekend, and then next week hear an idea that was fantastic.

Meanwhile, I'll be finishing my pick up section of the sampler.

What's going on with your loom? Any project ideas floating around? (Or entire completed projects for all I know?)

Happy weekend!
