We finished her's up as a wall hanging and it's adorable.
I had Christina take a couple of pictures of us when she picked Alexia up. It's been a while since she's spent the night and it's been a while since I've had my photo taken with her. She's getting tall!! And grown up!!!!
I posted a picture of these towels to the 4-Shaft Weaving Facebook page sometime last week. It's a group developed for learning weavers and I think turned taquete is the perfect draft to make a new weaver feel competent and happy. I've posted towels from this draft several times so was very surprised when I got a message Friday night from an editor at Handwoven Magazine, asking me if I'd be interested in submitting these to their home textile contest. She provided me her email and asked me to send her some photors, then emailed me the contest link.
Saturday morning before I went to book club, I spent about an hour taking photos outside. It's overcast and the indoor available light isn't available. This is one of the pictures I took, though it's not one I sent. I ended up making two entries to the contest after Alexia went to bed. The deadline is this Friday and I wanted to make sure I didn't miss it. I subscribed to the magazine last month but haven't received my first issue. I doubt I would have entered the contest anyway, even if I had the magazine. I just don't do stuff like that. I'm flattered to death however. The editor and I have since exchanged a couple more emails. It turns out that we have a mutual friend and read a lot of the same books - my other favorite thing besides weaving. What a nice surprise.
