Hello, friends. Yes! I'm still here. It has been far too long since my last post. Nutfield Weaver is still plugging along. I've been weaving some old favorites for the holidays (read: tea towels) and trying out some new approaches to using handwoven fabrics. Just yesterday I finished a sample clutch purse with a metal kiss clasp frame. Drafting sewing patterns is not a forte, so this takes some determination on my part. (Note to self: spend more time with protractors). The pattern worked out relatively well on "regular" fabric, so I hope to have a handwoven fabric version finished sometime this week.
Sage green and ivory towels are on the loom and there is warp left for just a couple more in this color combination:
And I took a leap and made some towels using non-neutral cottons as the primary color in these fabrics:
I sort of like the emphasis on the robins egg blue and the red in these fabrics. What do you think?
Waffleweave dishcloths are next up! Have a great week.
