Finishing Touches!

I made some commitments on Tuesday concerning what I would contribute to our booth at the Foothills Craft Guild's Fall Festival.

I marked myself down for at least:
4 Rag Rugs
12 Mug Rugs
8 Baby Blankets
12 Hand Towels

I had already completed, ages ago, the weaving of the Hand Towels in question at the Craft Center.  This week I decided that I needed to do the finishing work on the towels, so that I could get them back to the Center next week.  I really wanted to complete something on that list!  So, for the last few days I have been putting a decorative hem by hand on these Linen Towel.

I now have them hanging up to dry a bit, then I will iron the life out of them, or should I say the sheen onto them! LOL!  I have 10 of them here at home and I have already delivered 2 to the center, so that makes 12!  I also have 6 towels in cotton with a decorative border, so that will make 18 in all.  Whew!

I think I will tackle the mug rugs next, since they go pretty quickly.  The rugs are already done, (unless they sell on Etsy).  That will leave the Baby Blankets to do.  I have 2 looms warped for those, so it will just be the weaving and sewing to do.  I am feeling better already! 

I am looking forward to cooler weather, cause that means a cooler studio too!  A cooler studio means that I will be much more comfortable working up there.  I tend to do less weaving in the Summer it seems.  I think that may be a common trend.

I am off to hem those cotton towels, I am on a roll!

ETA!  Done

and done!

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

I've been counting my items, too! It will be here before we know it. It has been too hot for a lot of things this summer!
