SHOW & TELL FRIDAY HANDWOVEN FOOD COVER and RUG

Today I am sharing my handwoven food cover, and handwoven rug. 
 Which is made of basket material.

My friend Nancy, children were living in Malaysia. Nancy went on several trips to visit her children. She brought back several items to share with our Weaving and Spinning Guild. Nancy said there were ladies sitting beside the road weaving these food covers and rugs.

Nancy was going back to Malaysia to visit, we all placed our orders, Nancy was very kind to go out and purchase rugs and food covers for all of us ladies in the Guild. My friend Melba, placed an order for herself, and a Birthday surprise for me, a wonderful rug, which I hung on the wall, with my Native American Indian collection. The colors of the rug blend in so well with my collection.

After our family dinner this past Sunday, click here to see my
 table setting of Wild Rose Dishes for our family dinner,
I used my food cover to cover the food that was left.

My family went outside to sit by the fire pit and roasted marshmallow’s with the children. Just in case they came in hungry, I pulled out my wonderful food cover.

 
My handwoven rug, from Maylasia,
is on the wall in the background.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my handwoven food cover and handwoven rug.

  11. What lovely, interesting things for show and tell today! I love that Malaysian woven food cover! What a pretty and practical thing to have. :-) The rug is really lovely too…and do I spy buffalo on your shelves?! I have a buffalo named, believe it or not, SpongeBob (so named because of his huge, fuzzy head!), and I do love the rascal! :-)

  12. They are both wonderful. I see the bison in the photo too. I collect them too and native American art.
    Have a great day.

    Blessings, Elaine

  14. What unusual pieces. I love handmade things and appreciate the workmanship in these.
    Thanks for dropping by my blog too.

  15. Lady Katherine,

    I came via Tea Time With Melody…

    The food cover looks very familiar and the name Malaysia, is much too familiar to me…
    please do pay me a visit too…

    I happened to know a lady named Nancy from USA… used to work as a lecturer here in our country… but I guess she is not the same Nancy that you mentioned.
