New Arrival

Here is my new table loom - a 16 harness, twenty four inch Ashford. Amazingly it fits in a box which is 53 by 5 by 10 inches. I refuse to open it until I finish my jacket and put those darned sewing machines back in the closet. They always seem to have a life of their own.

Jacket is proceeding nicely. Sleeves were created and attached this morning. Not perfect...but the new loom is they probably will remain as they are. Lining was finished up. Another ironing job was completed. Next step is some hand sewing of the bottom hems and sleeve lining. And then I think it may well be done...unless I find another imperfection or forgotten area which needs to be handled.

Just in time for the holidays!
