The Possibilities of a Blank Page

A blank page of paper and a pen is the greatest invention - 
it's so exciting to be confronted by possibility.
~ Nicky Wire

Across the last few weeks, a little bit here and a little bit there, I've been getting my loom ready to weave a new batch of rag rugs.  

It would have gone more quickly, but I had "help" from one of our kittens - look carefully and you can see him.  (This did not end well.  There was yelling AND hissing involved...  I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide who yelled and who hissed.)  

Last night, I finally finished!  And here it is...  

...a weaver's blank page, its siren call humming in my head...  

Oh the possibilities!  :)

I think I'll start with this color combination...  

(Mostly because it is the only combination out of seven for which all three t-shirts have been cut into yarn!)  


  1. Wow - that looks complicated.

    1. Hi BeaJay! Yes, there are a lot of steps and it requires a lot of attention to detail. But once it's set up, the weaving is so much fun! For me, it's worth it! :)
