A Shuttle Trap

One of things I liked most about my Schacht Baby Wolf loom was the Wolf Trap - the little tray at the front beam that can hold your tools as you weave. I liked it so much, I asked Mike to build one for my new loom. I sewed the sleeve out of some leftover tapestry fabric I had from another project. I need to add one more coat of tung oil to the end pieces, but then the trap should match the finish on the loom perfectly.

I'm still plugging away at settling in to New Sheville. It was decided this week that the extra door in the corner needed to go away. It's not like there is a shortage of entrances around here so loosing one would be a good thing really. Better to do it now before we paint. Good news is I'll eventually be able to add a comfy chair to that corner.

Removing the door actually makes the porch look better. Before there was a cheap, ill-fitting aluminum screen door where the new siding is. It looked out of place next to the original old door. Once it is painted in the spring, you'll never know there was ever a door there to begin with.

More wall space can be a very good thing! (Write more; I've missed you!)

Makes sense to ditch the door. In upstate NY when I lived there decades ago, I remember many old houses having doors just like that. I guess it made sense to them when they built the house. It would make sense if it was a two family house but not for a single family.
