introducing the Sugar Loom
I love a good, slow project that I can steadily work on in the evenings after all the daytime chaos has settled down. There is nothing better than finding a rhythm with such a thing - stitch, stitch, stitch - my mind unwinds and works out problems, and a different part of my brain engages choosing colors with thread and fabric.
Thus we bring you Sugar Looms, our new love. This one is mine, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and Melissa will show hers to us on Friday (I've seen it already - it's so gorgeous!). The fabric I used comes from scraps of old dresses that the five-year old has worn over the past four years. Right now she loves this picture because she likes the magic of princesses running through the woods at night (me too). One day, hopefully, she will have this for her children and love it because it holds little pieces of her past.
(we'll be selling kits for these, with the pattern, frames, etc. starting perhaps next week. who needs a project for fall nights?)
