Last night I went to Genuine Joe's Coffee H0use for an open house. A friend from watercolor class, Toni Silver, has a showing there through the end of the month. I am excited for her. Her work is for sale, but even if she sells nothing, it must be quite a kick to be able to display your work publicly. Wonder if I could do that some day.

I love combos. I took the first weaving I did on the Inkle loom and used it as a strap for a purse. The purse pattern was a freebie from Lazy Girl, although I used different proportions. I had bought a fat quarter of batik from Fantastic Fabrics at the Austin Area Quilt Guild show; I used it as is. If I get tired of the purse, I have almost a full fat quarter of fabric available!

A generous woman advertised Inkle Looms on Freecycle. Not only the loom, but a weaving lesson. I accepted her offer and have finished one strap which can be used as a belt. It is primarily yellow, with a varigated yellow, orange, and green stripe in the center.
A second one is started, using some fuzzy purple, yellow and green yarn that I bought somewhere on sale. It took about four tries to load the loom properly, but I did it.
On my own. After looking at the instructions. Twice.
Just what I needed. Another hobby.
