The birthday girl was thrilled. She had been admiring my weaving, so I thought I would surprise her with a set of woven kitchen towels.

Lovely! Can't wait to make some of my own :-)

Wow! Those are amazing - a talent I do not yet possess... mainly because it intimidates so!

Erin Joy said...

Who wouldn't be thrilled with presents like these??

That's a beautiful towel set! I wish I knew how to weave like that. What a great and thoughtful gift

They look very nice. I would love to learn to weave one day.

Wow, that is a fantastic present.

So very pretty! I keep thinking I would just peek into weaving if only to get some towels out of it. Sigh. I guess it's store-bought instead.

So pretty and I can imagine how nice and soft they are. I saw a lady weaving silk in Phnom Penh and I was amazed to hear that she could complete a pice of sarong sized fabric in about a week. I'm sure it's as addictive as knitting, you keep on going just to see how the next row adds to the fabric :)

What a great gift! And what a nice friend your friend has. ;)

Gorgeous! This is why I wanna learn how to weave. I have a set of cotton kitchen towels woven by a friend's grandmother and the ones from the store don't even come close to the durability of these. Someday!

You're tempting me into exploring yet another craft, as if I don't already have enough keeping my hands busy! But these really are lovely towels, and so professional looking.

hetty said...

Beautiful! I want to learn how to do that too!

So beautiful, and so crisp looking! Reminds me of a very clean kitchen.
