I pick up "oddities" at the YSM. Things that catch my eye because of how they look, or because they are curious, or because I want to understand how it works, because it is eye candy...you probably know all the reasons.
Sometime ago, I picked up a little hand loom, thinking it might be fun to play with. It has knocked around my art rooms since then. In January, when I was consolidating three art rooms down to two, I found the loom again. I also, found a paper bag of off white scraps of fabric I used to make shabby chic flowers. I decided to see what I could do with the loom and the scraps.
