Sale Well I guess it’s sale time!  A Black Friday sale.  The leaves have mostly fallen and everything is starting to look rather drab and cold.  A lovely bright  handwoven scarf may be just what is needed to lift your spirits.

Dish Towels Well, I finally finished weaving the dish towels and took them off the loom yesterday. It seemed to take forever this time, probably because the summer was so nice it was hard to drag myself into the studio.  Beautiful Huck Lace in blues and some plain weave purple and blue. Now for the hemming. Only 4 months to Christmas. What’s next? I always seem to run out of blue towels so I think I will do a wedgewood blue and natural in Huck Lace as it is my most...
