Happy New Year..

... and let us hope it is going to be a drier one. Although if the first few days are anything to go by it is not very likely.

Way back at the end of summer I made a purchase. I wanted to buy something special with the money I had earnt doing private 1:1 tuition. I decided to buy a rigid heddle loom. I spent time waxing it over a few weeks then due to lack of time and one thing and another it did not get assembled.  By this time it was nearly Christmas and we decided to wait until after the holiday. Last week John put it together and help me with the warping. There was a very good video clip to watch which made it much easier.

 John had ago too

Tia had to have a look
but she got bored with it quite quickly.

But Tia decided she needed a warm by the fire.   (to be continued)

I have to say that looks very intricate to me. It makes a good change to do something different, even if Tia doesn't appreciate it. Looks like more wonderfully made Wendy crafts.
