Hot Pot


After some thought on how to keep from burning my hand on my Brown Betty teapot while trying to pour some lovely hot Earl Grey tea I came up with this idea.






A little bit of thought,  a little bit of handwoven fabric, a little bit of velcro and 
wa-lah - we now have a teapot handle cover.



Anyone for a spot of tea?

Back to the looms.

Happy Weaving.

Slow Return


Four surgical procedures in the space of five weeks have kept me from my looms this fall.  I am slowly returning to good health and higher energy levels.    It took me forever to get this organic cotlin warp off the loom and it was a short warp - only 4 yards long.

The bright citrus stripes in the towel below were woven with left over bobbins of organic yarn I had sitting in my bobbin box waiting for me to use them up.  




Three different green and white towels were woven on this short warp, this is the lime green version.




Now that I am just about back in the saddle as they say I need to get busy and start warping my looms the holidays are fast approaching.

Back to the looms.

Happy Weaving.
