"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Rustic Red


Handwoven. I love the way it feels in my hands. The way it looks hanging on the towel rack. And now I want to bake bread, crackers and biscuits just so I can wrap them in it. It is my 100% cotton kitchen tea towel's that I have started to weave. This towel is in rustic red and I love the softness of the colour. As I said in my previous post -this is my new song to the Lord.

Weaving a song


I had a dream - I was handweaving kitchen tea towels. So when the time was right my young daughter and I built a bobbin stand to hold the right amount of bobbins of warp that I would need. We found boards in the backyard that needed repurposing so with my handsaw, drill and a few screws and wood glue we built it on a piece of cardboard in the cottage kitchen. The cost was the dowels and machine bolts. It works beautifully and when it is not in use I dry laundry on it. And than I began to weave tea towels and my loom wove a song. <Sing a new song to the Lord. Psalm 98:1>
