...it's an eight shaft countermachea very beautiful floor loomand it's lovely to have the drawingwhile it's in storagemy other two looms are idle toothere needs to be more time for weaving : )k x
always moved by the sight of looms. my grandmother, a weaver, kept her own silkworm, spun her own silk, and wove beautiful bedsheets with it (each of her 18 grandchildren has a dowry of two!). whenever she began a new piece she talked as if she was about to 'set sail'. enjoy it, dear Kim!
Xenia, WOW!What a beautiful treasure to have and to remember her by. I absolutely love the idea of a new piece being like 'setting sail'.Tell me, do you use the sheets? They must be divine.k x
no, sadly we don't, the bed is a bit too wide and, however robust they may look, i'm not sure they were made with the washing machine in mind - but i do caress them often when i'm looking for something in the cupboard )x
...I can understand that, I don't let my handwovens anywhere near the machine.It must be wonderful to be reminded of her when you open the cupboard : )
