This past Sunday I spent the day in a dump.......my dump to be exact. The previous next door neighbor had been using a backwash area of the previous owners arroyo as his very own personal trash dump. He had dumped lots of old building stuff, old outhouse shacks, junk and trash. It really needs to be cleaned up and slowly but surely it is. But in the meantime I'm spending a bit of time scrounging and scavenging. I've found old enameled pots to put plants in for the green house and lots of old wood probably cedar I won't know for sure till I cut into them. Here's the start of my little pile :)

Whew! I'm on creative overload living up here where I do...... So....... I built a new loom. She is an 8ft at the hypotenuse. I hated geometry, I still do but it is handy for building Triangle Looms. This is my biggest loom to date. I have a love of primitive weaving techniques and a Tri Loom definitely falls into that category. So with a few feet of 1"X 2" red oak, 690 finish nails, my little drill press, wood glue and a hammer I have a new loom to weave beautiful shawls on. YAY!!!! Here I am putting in the nails with my little helper..Vernon!
