I just realized it’s been two weeks since I’ve written about something I’ve been meaning to do! I’ve been meaning to write about what IBMTD—really, I have!
I wouldn’t want you to think I’m a slacker so I will give you the most recent news, although there will be more to come.
I, with my husband, signed up for a beginners’ weaving workshop offered by our local Arts Council.
The classes start a week from today and will lead us, we hope, to finally making sense of the biggest, dumbest impulse purchase we may have ever made.
We’ve been meaning to learn to weave because last year, at a garage sale, we bought a humongous floor loom. We bought it even though it’s a) humongous, b) we have no place in the house for it, and c) we have no idea how to use it! But we got a great deal on it!
It has been sitting in our garage, mocking us in a slightly sinister way, ever since.
But that’s all going to change. Pretty soon I’ll be throwing around words like warp and weft and heddles. And stalking blogs about weaving, trying to figure out what I’m doing.
God knows, I need a new hobby. To fill up my free time.
Do you know how to weave? Any basic words of wisdom for us?
