A few updates to the blog...changed from Rigid Heddle Weaving obsession to "Weaving" obsession, why?  Well now I am also obsessing on Navajo Rug weaving as well.  Will it ever end????? I hope not ;)

I built my first Navajo Rug Loom this weekend (pics soon).  I am following the lead of  Weaving With Beauty,  Master Navajo Rug weavers make up this group.  I would highly recommend the following purchase if you are interested in building a Navajo Rug Loom or will purchase one and want to know how to weave on it: Atł’óhí Binaaltsoos (The Weaver’s Book): How to Weave the Navajo Way   (scroll past calendar and you will see the book).  It is ONLY $18 with digital download pdf version (and all they currently are offering)  a password is included with your purchase that allows you to view instructional video that follows the book, shows you how to warp, weave, finish....An exceptional value!!!!

In the beginning...

I received a large heavy box for Christmas from my husband, I unwrapped it and to my surprise and delight he got me a Rigid Heddle loom.  Of course I really had no idea what that was, I mean I had an idea of a loom but "Rigid Heddle"??? I have done many different crafts/handiwork over my lifetime, but never thought of doing weaving (other than making potholders when I was young).  I imagine I thought it seemed to complicated and I wouldn't know how to do it. 

So anyway here I am a bit over two months later and I have been weaving like a crazy woman!!!  I am hooked in more ways than one.  So hooked that I had a bunch of "favorites" that I needed to wade through related to weaving, so what the heck, create yet another blog.

And here you have it...
