Bit by bit I am making progress.
I just have to keep reminding myself of that when I get discouraged!
Here's how far I've gotten with the new loom...
But then some things that probably should have been removed weren't...
Obviously the previous owners were inexperienced :)
This is a big girl. Bigger footprint than my union. Wider weaving width, too. I've got the basics under control, but may need to do some more research when it's time to put on the harnesses and the ratchet to tighten up / advance the weaving. It's not obvious yet to me how it all goes together. Maybe as I get farther into it, it will be more clear. I do have a book with it, but the pictures aren't the same as the loom. Typical.
Reason this is as far as I've gotten?
I'm still trying to finish up outside projects before snow flies.
Got started on this tonite.
Here's the line up of parts for this section of the fence. Too bad I've got two more sections after this to do. I'm gonna have to pick up the pace - will need to dig more than 3 holes a night to get done in time!
Unfortunately work is taking up alot of my time. We are now in Mandatory Overtime. I've averaged about 55 hours a week since I started back in March. Makes me tired just thinking about it.
Hey! Good news. I think.
I am in the process of becoming a permanent employee. Problem is I have to go to night shift to do it. :(
Not looking forward to that - I'm a morning person.
All for now~ JULIE
