Small Gifts

Small Handwoven Bag

Small Handwoven Bag

The weaving study group “WOW”,  has an annual Holiday party. This year we went out to eat at a nice Italian restaurant “3 Olives Restaurant “.   Members can participate in the exchange of a small handmade gift as part of the gathering. The gift is placed in a brown paper bag. Numbers are drawn to determine order of selection. I made this small handwoven bronson lace, zippered bag for the exchange. It’s nice to find a good use for those small pieces of handwoven fabric used to sample.

Our brown bags are in the background awaiting the numbers to be drawn so packages can be selected.

I received this beautiful beaded ornament (designed by Heddi Bradley) in the brown bag gift exchange.

Can You Keep a Secret

This Bronson Lace weave is a gift for a very important person in my life this upcoming Christmas. The warp yarn is an alpaca silk blend. The weft yarn is a 20/2 silk. The scarf will be warm, yet lightweight and very luscious. I’ll have to weave it off this week so it will arrive in time for the big day.

What’s on the Loom

Kitchen towels of 8/2 cotton. I’ve named this color scheme “Fire”. The first 3 towels will look like this. While in the next 2, I’m using red in the weft in addition to the orange and yellow. This is a Bronson Lace weave structure.
