Like many people gas prices are killing us, so my summer activities have needed to change. Instead of looking for outings away from home, I have decided to spend the summer in my garden reading books from our local library. One of the books I checked out was Sublime Stitching, and boy was I inspired. I decided I wanted to try to make a couple of pretty towels.
I love Anthropolgie dishtowels, but at $22 per towel they are a little out of the range of what I can justify for a purchase that doesn't offer a lot of purpose. I knew that my mom who is an estate sale junkie would have a couple of vintage towels that she would donate to me. I purchased $2.00 worth of embroidery thread and I was on my way.
I spent the next three days on the patio just stitching away. I have to admit I found it incredibly relaxing, and I knew I was addicted.
This book had so may cool projects and designs, but I can't wait to come up with some of my own designs.
