Weaving for Spring
I am preparing for CraftBoston Spring, April 21-23 2017, but will be answering my messages in the meantime. I look forward to reopening my online shop on April 24, 2017. Be well, Kate K
2017 is in full swing and I have a few new things to share with you, lovely reader. I've been busy at the loom weaving old favorites but have also added a few things, too.
Windowpane plaid towels in red, blue, and green found their way into several homes in December between CraftBoston Holiday, several of the League of NH Craftsmen Gallery shops, and my online shop. I've added a new color combination to the mix, a black windowpane plaid. Here it is!

I have a new variation of my Farmhouse Plaid Table Runner, which, in case you missed it, was featured in Log Home Living, Nov./Dec. 2016. I am working this fabric into pillow covers. I'm going to take a few of these with me to CraftBoston Spring in April. Here is a photo:
(Some of my readers already know that the antique chair used in the photo was refinished and caned by my lately departed grandmother, Maxine Tanner, of Franklinville, New York.)
I liked the bold, centered plaid so much that I decided to take a step away from the more wintertime shades of garnet and black to work up this fabric to remind me of my favorite plant and aroma, lavender:
With at least 20" of snow on the ground right now and 2 degrees Farenheit temperatures, this fabric is a nice diversion from the winter chill here in New Hampshire. (Don't get me wrong, I do love a good layer of snow for cross-country skiing).
