Art of Alzheimer's-Linens and Lids

I didn't think I'd ever have more of these to share. I was looking through old photos, and found this.

I had probably given her some towels to fold, and she made art with them. The white is a lid from a plastic storage tub, and the blue lid from a plastic food container.

New Peg Loom

A friend and I were discussing weaving on the peg loom, and the subject of a finer peg loom that what I had came up. By finer, I mean one with smaller pegs set closer together. The next thing I knew, she had built one for me.

Isn't she pretty? All painted and everything.

This is the best part.

She is thinking of producing these for sale, so if anybody is interested, let me know.

I tried her out using some cotton tape yarn I got at the Textile Center Garage Sale last year.

I love the effect!

I just realized what the yarn reminds me of. Shoestrings.
