Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Let's visit V's weaving room today:
this is the brand and model of her table loom
work in progress
seen from a different angle
I like the colours V has chosen
and the pattern, this piece, like all her work, is all natural fibres, wool and sometimes alpaca hair, this piece is destined to be a poncho.
here is a closer side view showing how much woven fabric is already wound.
V tells me this is an electric spinning wheel, which runs very fast, but she hasn't used it in many years, having too much arthritis now to spin with any comfort.

V also has a fondness for puppets and made several of her own when she was younger.
but not these two pictured. I have seen photos of V with her handmade string puppets, she used to put on puppet shows.
