Finished and in Use

The crocheted bowl is now completed, starched, and in use.

The handwoven dresser scarves are now wet finished, hemmed by hand, and in use as well.

I love the way the textured, plain weave looks against the dark, smooth, wood of our new bedroom suite.

The sixteen feet of weaving gave me five runners altogether with no further leftovers. In addition to the 4 pieces needed in the bedroom (for two night tables, a mule chest, and a chest of drawers) I had enough finished weaving to make a runner for the kitchen table as well.
