How long is long enough?

Part of today was spent cleaning up the store room. I had let it get to be such a mess that no one could walk in there. It was pretty bad. Recently I had been to the Little Debbie Snack Cake store in Collegedale, Tn. While I was there I saw that they were selling some card board barrels. I thought it would be the perfect thing to hold rug weft. I don't know how much it holds but it comes up to my waist. It can hold a lot. I put a most of my stash in there and it will be nice to have it all in one place.

The rest of my time was spent weaving at the Newcomb Studio loom. I am weaving a runner but I can't decide how long is long enough. Any ideas? Right now it is 91 inches long. Maybe I will measure my hall and then decide. I really like how this rug looks and I just might keep it for myself rather than putting it up for sale.



  1. I would measure the hall. How much do you add on for "off the loom" measurement? 10%???

  2. sounds like a good idea to me! You have really been getting a lot done.

  3. Yeah, measure your hall and then decide.
