This towel was woven using a navy 8/2 unmercerized cotton weft:

A soft yellow 8/2 cotton weft:
I wove a narrow band on my inkle loom for hanging loops (thanks for the idea Marion!) and in the evenings I will be hand hemming the towels and sewing on the loops.
Speaking of inkle looms, I just finished winding another warp on mine using a eclectic blend of 10/2 mercerized cotton yarns and Tencel to weave more, you guessed it, bookmarks. My husband, and I are thinking of opening an Etsy account together to sell some of our work. I know what I'll be selling-bookmarks! That way I can feed the addiction ;-)
Do you remember all of those grandmother's flower garden blocks that I decided not to use in my last living room quilt? Well, I've started sewing those together with a beige background for my living room. This is all hand sewn, so it will be a long term project, and I'm okay with that. It will be done eventually....
I'm just finishing up sewing three tumbling block baby quilts in bright colors to donate to the City of Light, a women's and children's shelter here in Boise. They were fun to piece and I used a soft polka dot flannel for the back of one of them. All that is needed is the binding sewn on and they will be ready to go.
Here's hoping that you have time for fabric/fiber today,
