For my Valentine's Day post, I thought I'd share a few pictures of an old kitchen towel.
Walk into the kitchen—or any room—in the home of a member of my family, and you're sure to find something handwoven by my sister Jenny. She's been weaving (and teaching) for years and is always at her looms, producing one beautiful thing after another.
Jenny makes her handwovens to be used, and use them I do. This kitchen towel has been one of my favorites for many, many years. It's gotten a lot of use, and it shows. (I have an idea for a special way to repurpose it, but that's a secret for now.)
Jenny's work is a constant outpouring of love. When I look at these frayed threads, I don't see an old towel. I see love.
Happy Valentine's Day from me and Snickers (it wouldn't be a holiday post without Snicks!).
