Fob, Fob, Fobbing Along...

Wherever you are in that lake,
whether fighting to keep your head above water
in those horrible first waves,
or whether you're somewhere along
the more gently bobbing ones,
just keep your eye on the shore and know
that you are a little closer to it today
than you were yesterday. 
~ Liberty Forest

Well, despite the best efforts of my lungs to leave me, strike off on their own and make a new life for themselves, I have managed to convince them to stay and I have even gotten some weaving done!  

First, I finished my second, 47 inch long fabric panel!  Here are the two panels, side by side, on the bench cushion that they will eventually be covering:  

A closer view:  

It's a bit busy (you think?) - design is something that I need to learn about and work on - but it is still progress towards a goal.  :)

And, remember that Key Fob Weave Along (WAL) that I joined?  You know, the one with all the complicated rules?  ;)

I actually wove a key fob last weekend too!  

Here's the warp:  

My loom set up:  


Some progress:  

Houston, we have a fob!  


I am really happy with this design - I kind of copied it off someone else's fob - but the colors and color sequencing are all mine.  :)

Boy, it's a nice change of pace to do a 1-inch wide, 6-inch long project, after two, 7-inch wide, 47-inch long projects!!  

I've already got a plan for my next one - as usual, I jumped right from simple to insanely complicated and the design could easily crash and burn...  Wish me luck!  ;)
