Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Tapestry Weaving: A Comprehensive Study Guide
I'm learning to weave, so apart from all the other books I'm reading, I'm also working my way through this tapestry weaving book:


"Tapestry is a weft-faced weave, which means that the weft completely covers the warp, forming a flat, smooth surface."


And here is a picture of me with my lovely Glimakra Gobelin loom!

That's fascinating. I work in a knit shop and teach, and especially fix problems with knitting. Tapestry weaving amazes me but it's outside my skill set.

So jealous! I've always wanted a loom. Have fun!

Fun! I recently read a book where the main character was learning to quilt - similar? I can knit but that's about it! Thanks for coming by mine: http://mydogearedpurpose.com/2014/09/23/teaser-tuesday-september-23rd/

Oh my gosh! Look at that gorgeous loom! I'm so jelly! This post is just heaps of fun; enjoy looming and share pictures with us :)

That's really cool (and it also sounds really complicated, so more power to ya!) I can't even sew, let alone weave. I hope you have an awesome time with it! This week, my teasers are from Banned Books.

How are you finding the weaving so far? It looks pretty intimidating, but I'm sure once you get the hang of it....it's still pretty scary :p

The only thing I can do is crochet and not to brag or anything, but I can make a pretty amazing square or rectangle. lol.

Hope you enjoy the book and the weaving!
