Living and Learning

I've been fretting about getting a "Weaving Bench" for some time,..first of all the "Stool" that I used was too uncomfortable (and narrow :o( for a person of my plumpness :o) I tried using a pillow but that too was of no use ..I moved , it moved :o(
I saw benches from $100-$450..and frankly that's out of my pocket for a bench, There's a lot more I could do with that type of money than sit my fat butt on.
Finally one day while reading articles on the Internet, I ran across one that a woman used her "Shower Chair" and it fit the bill.. I have a "Shower Chair" maybe I'll try it out.
Well, I tried it out and it works :o) What a Surprise..it's wide enough ..strong enough..it was adjustable and is only two inches less that the weaving benches. Hey! I could put a pillow for the two inches or use the fat on my butt :o) Do a close up and you can see the narrow stool in the background..look at the difference, look how nice and wide the shower chair is and the back rest too...Seems the longer you live the more you learn! Just think how smart we would all be if we got here knowing all the stuff it took a lifetime to learn...maybe it's to get us ready for the "new Next Life" :o)..
I'm also glad I didn't get rid of my warping
board..I use my Tri loom thingy to hang it on
and I can sit in the chair while I warp up
to get ready for the next project. Stay tuned..there's more to be happening :o) In the meantime send some prayers over to "Mama-bugs" way for her pending double knee surgery...I'm sure she will appreciate it...We all need some intercession of prayer..

Ginny, what a neat idea. The things one can learn from the internet! Comfort is so important when sitting at the loom.

Glad to see you were able to find a cheaper solution. That shower chair looks a lot more comfortable than the stool! I'll put mamabug into my prayers. We can all use a little extra prayer now and then!

Ginny, this is very clever. This will be great to keep your back from hurting after you spend a lot of time sitting at the loom too.

Saying a prayer here for your friend, Mamabug.
