Earth Loom

It has been a year since my Earth Loom was set-up. Over that time, many things have been woven into it by many different people.

The other day I went out and took some photos of it and decided that it was time for this current warp to come off as most of the materials were dried up and the linen warp was starting to break down (and break) …

…though I think it still looks wonderful in so many ways…

Today, I took the warp and the weaving off and took it down to our orchard fence and hung it up there to let it naturally decompose.

I wonder how long it will take? I think I’ll leave it there and check on it periodically. In the meantime, the loom is empty – waiting for a new warp.

    I was thinking of you earlier today as I was out in the garden removing nearly spent blooms and weaving them into my loom. When I returned to my computer, there was your e-mail telling me about this fantastic post!

    First of all, thank you for the link – for including me here among the many people who have started and sustained Earth Looms. I am very proud to have been included among them.

    And thank you for all the links – I have more looms to go visit!

    And thank you for the inspiration in the first place! Making and weaving my loom has been a lovely and satisfying experience and one I will continue for years to come.

    Thanks Pam.

    I enjoyed removing the weaving from the loom and hanging it up on the garden fence to continue it’s process. And I’m excited to see what happens in the next weaving on the Earth Loom!!

    Happy Weaving,
    Terri
