Moo!

I received a sample pack of 10 moo mini cards - they're so cute and tiny! Maybe a little bit too small...I reckon the best format is 55x84 mm, business card. Still, I like them - and I've got an uncanny feeling that they might become highly addictive...

Then, while making some order I bumped into my first 5m of weaving - a lenght of log cabin - in dark and light blue wool, which I noticed is full of mistakes. That was the first time on a floor loom - pedals and two shuttles! - I wasn't exactly what you could call "coordinate"! It took a long time to weave, mistakes and all, but I am fond of this piece of fabric and I wanted to put it to good use, so I was considering using it to cover the cushions of a Danish chair.

The Danish chair looks very becoming. I think you must now make the lovely log cabin weaving more permanent on the chair. I'd be very happy to sit on it!

Hi aj,
I am definitely going to make it a permanent cover for the chair! I just wanted to see if after a few days I still liked it...I do!
