A friend, Mary Hovde, came over several times to help me warp my little 4 shaft Rassmussen loom. After much fighting with heddles (had to make 500) and rewarp twice because things got out of order.. I learned a ton.
I managed to get 3 nice sized towels. The purple one went to a new home. The others are being enjoyed by us.

Middle picture is what people have been calling a 'space odyssey'. Its a combination of stained glass with clear and red beads melted over the top. Beads are working pretty well.
Bottom was me using up cheap colored beads that turned clear or white on me except for the red and blue.. obviously.
This has been a steep learning curve but I'm really enjoying it Liz has tons of stained glass chunks that she inherited.
Next I think we will move on to the big kiln and try large glass slumping.

Bought this loom from a friend for really cheap... And it was already warped so I'm playing with it and learning how to read the pattern charts in books. Which was totally Greek to me..at first. I'm beginning to understand them a little more each time I go threw the books.
