A Saturday & Sunday Finish

50

I just finished the Saturday and Sunday kitchen tea towels. While they turned out really sweet I could kick my self with one of the wooden shoes. I had posted a photo of Monday and Tuesday

but in my rush to get the project finished and in the mail for gift giving on time, I forgot to get a photo of Wed. – Fri.. So no photo finish with this race.

On all the towels I kept the dress colors the same, the dark blue and turquoise except on Saturday for birthday cake giving!

Is it only me? why tea towel I thought and a quick google look see answered my question.  Simply put: the term tea towel is used in England and here in the states we know it as a dish towel. Tea towels were used to dry the china that was used while serving tea ~ makes sense. Here we use it for just about everything and anything. There are endless sites and posts on tea towels. I never thought I would find tea towels such a fascinating read ~ but I have.

    You should ask the recipient to send you photos of the missing days so you have the whole set. These are just so cute and beautifully embroidered!

      Thank you Kerry. Actually I had thought of asking for a photo but worried my recipient was to tech/photo challenged to get one. I think I may have a way around that and am working on an alternative person to snap a picture for me 🙂

      Thank you Kathy – it didn’t feel like a flash working but actually it didn’t take to long at all.
