December at Nutfield Weaver

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.
Be well,
kate
