I've Made Up My Mind

This is the loom I've chosen. A Mirrix Zach-22" of tapestry weaving lovliness! I can hardly wait until tomorrow to order it!!!
I've just about finished sorting out the stash and re-arranging the studio. Moving the knitting things to the other room-I'll be doing my painting in there too. I guess I'll have two studios! this studio will be dedicated to spinning and weaving.
Last night I found a couple of websites that have tapestry yarns! Oh!!! The colors!!!! I have to start stashing some of this stuff for weaving. I'd love one in every color, please! A big Lotto win would help. I could easily spend several thousand on just yarn!
Tom also ordered me a "How To" book from Amazon the other day. Hopefully it will be here today or tomorrow so that I can do some reading up on how to become a tapestry artist. Called "Tapestry Weaving: A Comprehensive Study Guide". I know, that sound pretty boring to most people, but, to me, that is the kind of book that I'd have given my right arm for back when I was 18 and wanting so much to go to art school. Well, it took me 40+ years to get there, but, here I am and I'm going to learn how to do this! Exciting stuff!!
I need a cup of coffee!
