Just a hello



 While I've been busy making towels, L has been weaving blue jean rugs on her Weaver's Friend.

They are thick and heavy, and beautiful, too.





 I tried a new binding for the ends of this one.  You know that saying:  something about necessity  being the mother of invention?
Yeah, don't ask.


Thanks to Sharon, over at sagecreekfarm.blogspot.com  for giving me this great idea.

My Singer steam press came today, and I just love it.


It is definitely a great addition to the studio.


I pressed 16 dish towels in about 10 minutes.

They look professionally pressed, and I am very pleased with them.





Sometimes, it's good to take a late afternoon break, and ponder on how grateful I am, for so many things.

I love the steam presser, also! It sure makes short work of a stack of handwovens! So glad to see you enjoying your porch time!
