My Creative Space…

by Kate on August 19, 2010

I would just like to thank everyone for your kind words and thoughts on my last post. The finger is slowly recovering, the graft is taking nicely and I today I finally feel like I have a hold on the pain.

Having one arm out of action makes it hard to do most things (thankfully, I have the best mum around so things on the home front have been pretty good), but crafting however has been non-existent.

Patchwork, quilting, crocheting and knitting all require the use of two functioning (pain free) hands and the thought of zero productivity for the next few weeks was pretty disheartening.

Enter the loom, my sanity saviour.

Thanks to Kirst, I am now in possession of the prettiest little loom in town.

So excited with all the weaving possibilities and it can all be done with one hand!

For more creative spaces, head over to Koo’s.

Hooray! Kirsty to the rescue! So glad you found a one arm craft. I was going to suggest macrame using your big toe to hold the loop but this is much more fashionable ;)

I bet Maddie loves it too!

We had one of those accidents at my local quilt shop. Shop assistant doing too much talking not enough watching what she was doing. Only 5 stitches though. Here is to everything healing well and soon so you can get on with more stitching.

wow – any mention of 'loom' and i am instantly transported to The Good Life and the episode about the loom and wool on fences!

Thanks for making me giggle, this loom is very pink and looks a lot more productive than John's…

Oh good, so glad to hear it's taking well and pain is getting there. It can only get better from here (unless you're naughty!). Take care and enjoy the weaving!

Hope your hand gets better soon, women do heal fairly quickly, they have to! I wait to see what you make.

Weaving, how cool! I spent 6 weeks with a plastered broken wrist a couple of years back – over the crafty Christmas period (I was pregnant, what's more – not fun!) anyway, I can vouch for gocco-ing being another craft you can do one-armed! I did a bunch of bookplates and notecards that year for gifts. Heal well :)

Oh my goodness, I have been looking for a loom and this one just screams me! Could you let me know the name/brand, or perhaps where Kirst got it from?? Thanks so much!
