BlueRobot Robot Scarf
The other day I showed the scarf that i had
made on the loopdeloom . After doing that
one I thought now can I use the loopdeloom to
do a scarf with picture on it and well as it
was not as simple as the plain blue one it
was soo cool to make .
(made with store brought yarn)

Christmas Tree OH Christmas tree !
OK now I can show my Christmas card
for this year .
I was a bit distracted this year with pop up cards/books,
embroidery machine and then Spinning machines.
that when it came to late november that I had not even thought about
the Christmas cards from us this year . Then we had on Wednesday
morning the Shopping catalogs "YUNK MAIL" arrive
and Neal was reading them and then said to me "Susan
this is you this is a Susan Style " Handing me a picture out
of one of them . and said "this should be your Christmas
card this year "
being slice form, it was it was cool so I set out to design it
in Make the cut
and HERE is the result of what i came up with
AND how to make in Make the cut you can view
And this is what inspired it all

Peg loom (loopdeloom) Scarf Blue
When I got the spinning wheel I promissed that I
would use some of the stash of store brought wool
I had in the house as well . So I went looking for
a "Peg loom" and on the search to find a peg loom
that I would be happy with. I came across a kids
toy called "loopdeloom" and of corse I had to have
some of them (brought two as they join together to make
wider projects). And here is the first scarf I made on it .
First the loopdeloom
And my first project (will not be my last this
took me about 30 minutes to weave)

Spinning a Kris Kringle
Now I have finished my christmas cards
and they are all on there way around the world .
It then came time to think about what to do
for our Christmas lunch yesterday
(for the spinning wheel group that i meet with on Thursdays )
We had to bring a Kris Kringle present.
As my spinning is still in the learning stage I though
what was I going to make for the present .
And then I had a thought that I would buy a glass jar and
etch it with the spinning wheel and fill with lollies.
Then I thought I know I will do an
embroidered towel. Now I had to take my design that
I had drawn in Make the Cut and into my
embroidery software and convert it to a
stitch file ( added more to the embroidery file like
And here is what i came up with .
(all the spinning wheel embroidery paterns I had seen
on the net were not what i wanted it to look like )
And here is what it looked like in the box
