Kathie's studio

Wow, I really disappeared on you, didn't I? A little unintentional blog break I'm afraid! I did have a great excuse last week. I went to visit my friend Kathie in Asheville, NC. We hadn't seen each other in years but it felt like no time had passed at all. She was a gracious hostess and we had a wonderful time. Today I thought I'd give you a peek into Kathie's awesome home studio. 
This first corner would be a spot where I could function well, the sewing/ironing station. 
But after that, I'm lost! Kathie is a weaver. She has been a weaver for as long as I've known her (much longer really!) and I have always admired her beautiful work. Here are two of her gorgeous looms....

 While I was there, Kathie had her looms set to weave some of her fabulous "towel towels" as she was being filmed for a video for the website This Land, which will be featuring some of her towels soon. I'm so happy to have one of her towel towels in my kitchen!

 Look at all of those beautiful colors of yarn waiting to be made into wonderful things!
 Kathie has threatened to put me to work if (WHEN!) I visit again. I'd be perfectly willing! Thanks for the great visit my friend!
