December weaving

Greetings from Harrisville, where we are experiencing our first serious snowfall right this very minute. Those of us in the higher elevations in the Monadnock Region can anticipate up to 18″ of the white stuff. But hey, ’tis the season!

This weekend marked my final show of 2019, and I wrapped up with one of my favorite events of the year, the “Broke Art Fair” in Peterborough, NH. I was pleased to see many returning customers. For those of you who aren’t familiar with “Broke,” it is a fair in which artisans may only bring pieces priced at $50 or less AND we have a 4′ x 2′ table space in which to display our work. Here is a photo of my display from Saturday:

Towels were popular sellers, along with my newest bookmark design shown here:

This week I will be working on new kitchen towels as my inventory is a bit low. Next up will be a series of my “nine-patch” bordered towels. I love to weave these. Here is an example of the pattern:

This year I will be trying to rein in my color selections for my kitchen textiles, particularly with designs like the nine-patch towel. I’ve found that it is very difficult to satisfy the color preferences for everyone and there are so many variations of, for example, purple or blue, that it seems best to pick 3-4 colors and try to work within these selections. Hopefully this approach will allow me to simplify. Simplify, simplify, simplify….

Stay warm and cozy, friends.

Be well,

Kate K.
