Have loom and guitar will travel

When a weaver and a musician go on holidays, what do they take with them?

Their dogs, of course!

But of course, they never leave home without a guitar

Or, a loom:

I was weaviing away on this pouch while we were away:

So, I took advantage of the gorgeous scenery to photograph the step by step photos of weaving the pouch:

Mini has her own wee suitcase which she snuggles very happily into, along with all the bits and pieces needed for the weaving.

(It began life as a case for a drill that lives in a toolbox, so Jim gave the un-used case to me and I love it forย  Ms Mini!)

When we are on holidays, I tend to photograph the smaller things, like lichens:

and flowers (ahem… the wind was crazy, so trying to get the flower to sit still was a lost cause)

and small looms on beautiful stony beaches:

and the patterns in tree roots:

Speaking of wild animals, last year when we went to Jasper (in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada), we saw 13 bears!

This year, we only saw one:

But we did see one VERY thrilling wild animal- the first time I have ever seen a wild mountain goat, in fact:

It was rainy, windy and cold for the entire time we were there, which made perfect weather for weaving and making music ๐Ÿ˜€

But then, as far as I am concerned, ANY weather is perfect for weaving and making music ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope that you had a lovely summer and that the sun shone upon you, and music swirled around you and that the yarn was sweet in your hands!
