I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

Pegging projects

While my crafty hands were out of commission, I kept busy other ways.

My handyman hubby helped me install a peg board in my craft room. Now my looms have a pretty place to hang.

With some projects on-the-loom, I think I'm going to need some more hooks soon. A yellow Knifty Knitter loom, Decor Accents fine-gauge loom and a handful of blue KK looms will need a home, too!

Eight wood screws secured two back boards over the studs. I then painted the boards the same blue. Sixteen wood screws secured the peg board to the back boards. I don't think this baby is ever coming down now.

The way it was ... looms often fell from the coat-hanger setup.

I also started working on an ottoman for the living room. I stained the wicker with a vivid red oak. Next up is putting a cushion on the top and upholstering some stripey fabric over the lid.

It might look done but that fabric is just wrapped around the lid for now. Staple gun will come later.

I think a dining room curtain that has been hanging for more than a year without any finished seams is next on my personal honey-do list.

I have picked a few stitches this past week. I am part of a Twilight knitters swap so I've been scurrying to get that done before the end of the month. That means no spoilers until my buddy gets her package! AND I have another secret project after that one. But if I get any knittin' for me or the shop done, I'll be sure to share!
