2 Out of 3 Ain't Bad...

I finally had some time last week to work on my towels that I coffee stained a week ago. I have two of them done and can't decide how to do the third. Oh wait!!!!!! Just had an idea as I type this. WOOHOO!!!!! I already have one project going and now I have a second that will be underway after I'm finished typing. Yea Yea I know I need to be cleaning, but when I get the ideas I gotta act on them or they'll be gone.

I really like this one... It is just hand stitched in brown...



Close up...




The next one I stenciled on then sanded a little. It looks like it's pink but it's not on the flowers. I used barn red.



Hmmmm... maybe these towels should be on the selling blog?

Next I promised at the beginning of the year that I would use up my fabric stash. Sooo... Saturday I went down and looked through and decided I was going to try my hand at a tie quilt. I am not all prim JUST mostly. LOL. The stupid fabric was printed crooked on the firefighter side so the bottom was off after I squared it up. Grrrr... I made my son a rag quilt out of firefighter fabric awhile back and had extra. Ummmm ALOT of extra. I used some red flannel that I had in my stash to make Christmas stockings that I never got to. So between Saturday and Sunday I finished it. Tying it was so much easier than hand quilting!!!! BUT the string/yarn I used is driving me crazy I already had one tie come loose. I used the surgeons knot to tie it. It ended up being like 44"X72". My son wanted to know who it was for. Steve piped up and said he was claiming it. LOL. My son got this look of devastation on his face. I'm sure my son will end up with another quilt. LOL.


No laughing at the binding... remember this is my second quilt attempt. LOL



I hate to cut this short but the creative juices are calling. I will show ya tomorrow what I've been working on.
