This week has been a crazy week....typical of the week before Fryeburg Fair.
This year I thought I would try something different for the loom demonstration....working on a rigid heddle loom using 2 heddles. Sounds pretty straightforward in the book and the videos....especially the part about direct warping.
I am a distributor for Schacht, so I brought in one of their Flip Rigid Heddle looms. Figuring I should learn how to be able to teach people how to warp their loom in the "direct warping" method that is shown in the instruction book, I set about warping my loom.
Umm.....when you are warping close to 400 ends that is a TON of walking on a 6 yard warp.....so last night when I was looking at facebook and one of Courtney's friends who much to her dismay is one of my friends....LOL... had the following status:
If I get drunk yes I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
I had to laugh.....being the music junkie that I am, I know that the following lines are:
I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more just to be that man who walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door....
Man o man.....I think I walked those 500 miles warping that loom!!! Next time back to the warping board....just sayin'. :-)
Sometimes you just never know where your blogging inspiration is going to come from...LOL!!!
