il-LOOM-inating
Topic: Other Hobbies

M-A-N-Y many years ago I took some college classes in weaving. I recently ran across several projects that had been long stored and thought I'd share them.

This is a kilt I made for my hubby in his family's tartan (Royal Stewart). I wove 6 yards of fabric, designed and made the kilt.

There was enough yardage left that I made a miniature kilt for our son (about age 1) and this neck scarf for my father-in-law.

My weaving was back in the day when long skirts were the thing. I made this houndstooth weave for my mom.

This skirt I made for myself - plain weave with a border of pattern weave at the bottom.

I made baby blankets for each of my kids but don't have either of those handy to show. I do have this wall hanging that I made with 100 handmade brass bells woven in.


I do still have a floor loom but have not had a project on it for at least 25 years. So many hobbies, so little time.
