Happy Labor Day (USA)

Hi Folks,   I have been enjoying the long holiday weekend with a friend who works.  We have done a lot of "goofing off" - and I am teaching him to weave a little. In the process, I put  a warp on the big rigid heddle loom for me to use as a demo.  I set up the smaller Cricket loom for him to use.
I got lost in the weaving and made this long piece of fabric. It is 90 inches long and eleven inches wide.
I am thinking I will make more and sew it up as a jacket or coat for fall/winter.  I put it around my neck (just goofing off)  and really liked what I saw.  That gave me the idea.  It looked something like this:
Ha ha....no one will miss me wearing a coat that looks like this.   Now I have to weave more fabric.

Hey, don't forget to enter my LapelStick giveaway. I may throw in an extra surprise for the winners.
Have a great day.
