Mud Run

Audrey and I did a Girl Scout Mud Run on Saturday. It was gloriously muddy. Mud is slippery. I fell down a lot. I slid down a muddy hill into a mud pit, and I went under. I have found mud in all sorts of places. It was awesome. If you get a chance to run a mud run, I highly recommend you run it.

My Grandmother’s Loom

I don’t remember much about my grandmother. One of my strongest memories is her sewing basket beside her chair. It was always filled with small squares she wove on a small loom. My sister recently gave me our grandmother’s loom. Her craft room loss was my yarn room gain.

The loom is a Weave-It, a popular pin loom from the 1940s and 50s. After googling directions I got to work. I love weaving the small squares.

I plan on sewing the squares together to make a blanket. You don’t need much yarn per square, so I’m going to start a woven scrap yarn blanket.

This is the kind of weaving for me. It’s small. It’s fast. It was free. Audrey is already asking for a loom, so I might be buying another loom on ebay for her birthday next month.

I hope you are all doing well!
