Looming large

I am returning once again to the task of clearing the workroom and am looking on a Tuesday at clearing 'stock'. I bought these looms for running brooch making evenings. I have kept some as I really enjoyed doing these but have some that could do with finding a new home. I am offering them including U.K p&p at £5. Please leave a comment if you are interested. These can be used to make flower brooches- which have always been a good seller for me, or used as a kind of french knitter to make a thin tube for scarves etc.


Speaking of flower brooches I can't wait to try making one with this fantastic sparkly tape sent to me by Jenny. She was sweet enough to send me some of her fantastic hand made sewing accessories and the lovely ruffle brooch as a thank you for some books I sent for her husband. The quality of her construction is really stunning and the the little cushion now resides on my sewing machine as a very handy pin cushion, the brooch is on my jacket, the sewing book has however been ear marked by Anna- (can you see her tiny fingers!?). I think it's lovely that she has her own needles and pins and she has tucked some her favourite buttons in the pockets inside. I think my stash my deplete faster than expected with my little Magpie around!

I don't want to bore you with repetition but did I ever tell you about my embarassing experience with a shawl I made on a flower loom?

LOL I snapped up some flower looms in a charity shop months ago, but couldn't work out how to use them. I found some instructions last week - but I've no idea where the looms are. suspect they've gone to another charity shop!
