Under The Watchful Eye

I have often wondered why my barn kitties eat their food so darned fast.

And then this weekend we discovered one of the reasons....

It seems that the Lucilles have learned where a fresh meal can be found.

There is nothing more annoying than having beady little chicken eyes staring you down
as you try to enjoy your breakfast!
Pause... and you just might lose the rest of your meal!

Look what arrived in yesterday's mail...

My loom!
I put a coat of finishing wax on it and assembled it yesterday afternoon.
Hopefully today I will have time to put on the warp.
I'll keep you posted with the progress.

I am still awaiting the arrival of its stand, so that I don't have to leave it on the table top.


  1. What brand of loon did you get?

  2. Canned cat food is my chickens favorite treat!

  3. I can't wait to see your loom in action!

  4. It is an Ashford 32" Rigid Heddle Loom

  5. Looks like fun in your future!! Crazy hen!!

  6. I can't get Max's food out of the can fast enough for him..No scary chickens here..They are just little piggies in kitties clothing...

  7. Great post. And good luck with the loom! Aloha

  8. Oh Beverly, what a beautiful loom!

    Your photo of barn kitty and chicken is a real HOOT!

  9. The kittens have grown and are wise to beware of the chickens.

    The loom is gorgeous and like the rest of your followers I can't wait to see your first project.

  10. The chickens know where it at for sure lol ! Lovely loom looking forward to seeing it all put together . Thanks for sharing , have a good day !

  11. Poor barn kitties .... that would drive me crazy too! Oh, your loom looks great ... can't wait to see it up and working! Ha, I guess that means you'll be up and working too, right? Thanks for the always entertaining blog. Looking forward to shearing day!!!

  12. I started out on a Ashford Rigid Heddle loom, watch out, I now have a 5' adjustable pin loom, a tapestry loom, a twining loom, a inkle loom, a peg loom, a 4 harness floor loom and a 12" square pin loom! I highly recommend the book by Jane Patrick - A Weaver's Idea Book. I did a 8' long sampler of every pattern in it, simply amazing what you can turn out from that little loom! Enjoy!
