Dusting off the old weaving loom

I bought this Frame Loom several years ago for a sweet $25.  I have a floor loom (4'x4'), but I wanted to do some very small weavings and that loom was overkill.  
I finally got this one out, dusted it off and started in.  
First, to measure out the warp.... 
Oops, I'm a bit rusty, so I made a couple of mistakes.  No problem, I'll just undo what I did and start over....
 And in my haste and idealism, I created a tangled mess. About 3 hours later (yes, I'm that frugal that I couldn't bring myself to just throwing it away), it was ready to put on the loom.
Oh boy, oh boy, this is going to be fun!

She is fast!

Linda, the inspiration for my "Eco Shopping Bag" tutorial, is definitely the over achiever.  She has already made her first shopping bag... and only 7 more to go!  I love to see photos of what people have made from my patterns and tutorials - Fun!
