Woven art looms | Boise Photographer

My mom, Linda Pearman, is a weaver. In fact, she’s the only weaver I know.

In my parents new home she has room just for her two looms.

She weaves, table runners, scarves, dish towels, rugs, wraps…

Everything she weaves is rich in color, texture & pattern.

These photos illustrates some of the techniques & steps in weaving.

It is too bad I didn’t take any photos of a few of her finished pieces…

Big Jud’s is being modest….

…they don’t just make big burgers, they make enormous burgers.

I’ve passed by Big Jud’s countless times. However, this was my first trip in. When I stepped inside I couldn’t help but feel like I was in a mom & pop burger joint along the highway on a road trip.

Not only do I like that simple, nostalgic feel, but their fries looked really, really delicious. I’ll be eating there soon…
