JST Weaving Exchange - Results

Way back in November I joined the Jane Stafford Tea Towel Exchange on Ravelry and wove these towels.
Yesterday the long awaited parcel arrived! I'm thrilled, the weaving quality is stellar and the colours chosen are fantastic - really inspirational. Here they are for you to see!

The first is a Plain Weave Towel in soft blue, peach and turquoise is from Val in Powell River, BC. Next is a Swedish Lace towel is called 'Banana Cream Pie' from Cathy in Alaska, USA.
This Plaid beauty in red, orange, yellow and blue is from Toni in Vancouver, BC. And a Twill and Basket Weave in vibrant yellow, lime, black and soft green from Sandra in Vancouver BC. My fifth towel is a very thirsty looking eight shaft Turned Twill from Debbie in Lousiana, USA.
The sixth and final towel is an amazing Plain Weave Colour Gamp in orange, blue, lime, fuschia, yellow, teal, black and violet! The photo's just don't do it justice! This comes from Jan in North Saanich BC.
Here's the group shot....I'm totally stoked at the vibrancy and beauty, I can't wait to do it again!Thought you might enjoy the wee poem I posted on Ravelry to express my thanks.

The postman dropped the package off, I really have to say,

That I’m one happy weaver gal with what I got today,

The tea towels that were sent to me are such a great display,

Of weaving ingenuity with colours bright and gay

A collective ‘Thanks’ to everyone from places far away,

And to JST for hosting this I’ll shout a big hooray!

I'm so glad you like my towel, Lynne - and guess what! I got one of yours too! My exchange package came today, and I was thrilled to be gifted one of your lovely soft towels. So beautiful! This exchange was such fun!

Your towels are gorgeous! Did go back to your linked post, and was sorry that we didn't see pics of the finished towels you sent out.

I joined a napkin exchange this year - my first exchange. Towels would have been more functional for me - maybe next time....

Hi Peg,
I didn't realize that I hadn't posted any photos of my completed tea towels!
I did post them on Ravelry on the JST group if you'd like to have a look at them there....mea culpa!

Thanks for telling me where to find your towels, Lynette. Unfortunately, I'm not a Ravelry member, although I am on Weavolution. Why have I resisted joining Ravelry? I HATE sites where I have to join just to see what's there and if it might interest me. So I won't be able to see your beautiful towels. (sigh) Maybe I shouldn't be so stubborn....
