Hello, friends. I've found that one of the nicest rewards as an artisan is receiving a photograph or two of a Nutfield Weaver item in its new home. Brides frequently forward me photos of their pew cones, and just recently I received a photo of one of my table runners:
This table runner is a "summer & winter" pattern and features red and ivory cottons. It looks quite at home in this lovely, traditional dining room, don't you think?
After receiving an invitation to exhibit at an historic farm in Massachusetts this September, I got to thinking about taking steps to "define" my handwoven items. To start, I'm mulling over color choices. There are several signature pieces that I'll continue to weave, but weaving "one of everything in every color" is getting to be a bit impractical.
Red, sage, and colonial blue are in my top three spots for now, at least for table runners. I'd love to hear your thoughts! What are your favorite colors for housewares?
Have a lovely weekend!
