Weaving Happiness

There are SOME fabrics that are just
TOO UGLY to use in a quilt.

But...
they are the PERFECT addition to woven pieces!

I used a REAL HODGEPODGE of fabric strips in this runner.

My scrap basket of strips leftover from trimming quilts
and some UGLIES
made this WONDERFUL runner I am going to call MINE.
;)
 
I actually took my loom
and a bag of scraps along with me
on our ANNIVERSARY trip.
30 years ago I said, I do!
 
I've gotta say....
Isn't it wonderful
when Hubby says "BRING YOUR LOOM!
BRING YOUR SEWING MACHINE!
BRING IT ALL!!!"
 
I did.
 
He knows me by now, I guess.....

  18. I love that!! What kind of loom do you have? We like to vacation on the Outer Banks in North Carolina and there is a place I visit that has a room full of looms and baskets of fabric strips. They take used clothing and tear it into strips and anyone who goes in there can have a sit down and weave a little. They sell the goods for charity. Every time I go, I start googling looms and check what's out there. And great choice in hubbies!!
