I couldn't resist adding a picture of these swans. They live in the local park and I have been watching them regularly over the last year. They are so grown up now....I am wondering if they will soon fly away in search of their own mates. I shall be sad to see them go! On a cheery note - I have now started to sew the coat.....so far, so good. The sleeves are almost ready to cut out. I have stretched my brain somewhat because I wanted the design to be vertical rather than horizontal. I only have a 24" loom so I'm severely limited. I have a feeling that I may eventually be talking myself into buying a 32" (I think that's as wide as the rigid heddle loom goes). It would give me an extra 8" though - so I shall see...........Mind you, as people keep on asking me if I do workshops, I suppose I need another loom???!!!
