Do any of you remember making things like placemats and doilies using a wooden loom...probably back in the early 70's? My dad made me a loom and that Christmas every person I had on my gift list got a set of placemats...great fun! This past Christmas Pam Kellogg's beautiful mother Adria sent me one of her handmade doilies and I realized that she had used one of those looms. Mine, of course, is long gone. Well, after I wrote to thank her and told her the story about my experience with the loom, she told her wonderful husband who then proceeded to make one for me!! Not only did I get a loom, but Adria also made me another doily AND pre-threaded the loom and gave me instructions on how to do it (good thing, because I had totally forgotten!).
Here's the loom and what it makes...
Thank you SO much Adria and your wonderful woodworking husband!!
oh - and just as a sidenote - woke up to a heavy coat of snow this morning!!!!!!!!!!
