Visit My New Line in Housewares

Roaster Coasters handwoven coasters, aka mug mats.

And I will be taking a couple of them in gift boxes to Swift Waters.
I'm sending a couple of sets out to the stores, so what's left will go up on Etsy. I already sold a few at GGG and the farmers' market. I'm working on more colors.

And this is a gorgeous red and white cotton/linen kitchen towel that needs to get up on Etsy already!

Two New Enviro-friendly Scarves

My Stripe Hemp Handwoven scarf is now in the shop. It's made of cotton, but mostly handwoven of organic hemp.

This is Loud handwoven with soy silk, a byproduct of the tofu manufacturing industry. It's bright redpinkorange, but very soft. It feel like a cross between silk and a well-worn cotton.

And now for something completely different: I started teaching myself to play the guitar a few months ago. I put a link up to a couple of videos I made (in the sidebar).

Success is . . .

Dodging rain, thunderstorms, and two days of tornado warnings (I'm in Connecticut, not Kansas, Toto, so two days of tornado warnings is rare, indeed.) and a great turn out for the first annual Galleries, Gardens and Gifts.

Special Effects painted wine glasses. "The women we used to be, wish we were, will never be!"
