Big Red Bow

Posted by fireside

Each year, this is the week that Christmas kicks in for us.  It’s colder outside now, so we regret not putting up those outside decorations when we originally thought about it (and it was warmer!) and hope that it stops raining and snowing long enough for us to get them up easily.  We have finished our early shopping to support our community activities to make the holidays more enjoyable for others by filling shoeboxes full of gifts for Meals-on-Wheels clients, buying clothing and toys for needy families in our community, donating items for our church’s shut-in Cheer Baskets, buying gifts for teenagers of our food bank families, and ordering poinsettias for “behind the scenes” people in our lives that need to be appreciated.  With our sons’ Band Concert and Choral Concerts within the week, our Christmas spirit will be fully sparked.  It’s now the decorations, good food and time with family that we are looking forward to this Christmas season.

As we decorate our home, I try to find the perfect spot for our Big Red Bow…and as it nears my loom I wonder if it has found its home…and then I thought “Looms dressed for the holidays?  No, that would be crazy”.  

But we did take an opportunity before last Christmas to brighten one of our brand new looms with some bows of its own before it traveled to its new home in Washington state.   Check out this Fireside 40″ 12-harness walnut jack loom with commuter bench…decked out with a Big Red Bow!

Please share with us your holiday pictures that include your loom, your Christmas weaving projects or your own Big Red Bow!  We’ll add your picture to our Holiday Photo Gallery.
