I Love Making Dish Towels!


 I Love making dish towels. These are one of my very favorite things to make. I find all the fun patterns for quilts and put them on my towels.



 You always start with the flower sack towels. I like these best because if you iron them, fold in half and try with a bow it looks for pretty for giving away. (You will see at the bottom of this post.)



 On this batch of towels I decided I really didn't want to stitch the letters that I wanted above the design. So I used my computer and made iron ons. I did the same thing with my blog logo and put it on the back corner. They look just like I do this all the time.....LOL



Next I love to crochet the bottoms just to make them a little more special. And it gives me something to do when we are watching a movie.



I like to do the first row on some with white
so it blends in and then the colors look like lace.



And its always fun to use more than 1 color! Now just tie with a ribbon and slide a wooden spoon in and you are done. I would give the pickle one with a jar of my pickled veggies.



This one you could give with a mixing bowl and all the makings for a cake.



This one could go with a bag of corn from "Farmer's Market".


 With a Dinner for a sick friend.



I just LOVE to make dish Towels!

Did Your Heart Sing Tuesday!



Divine Secrets of the Ya - Ya Sisterhood
This is one of my favorite movies. It was on TV  Monday night and I hadn't seen in a long time. It was so fun to watch it again. My husband didn't agree. But he did stay and watch it so it must not have been to bad. I loved watching the friendship these women have. And the things they will do for each other. I love the opening and the end where they let the daughter join their club. And everything in the middle too! This is just the best movie! But who doesn't love a movie that has Sandra Bullock in it.

YoYo Mama's


It was my turn at club to do the lesson and so mine was a gift idea.
With Christmas right around the corner I thought a homemade
dish towel and a tin of cookies with the recipe would be a fun and easy gift idea.
 This is the dish I did with rick rack sewn on the bottom and crocheting
on the bottom of the rick rack. I decided to make a kits for the
girls so they could make their own.
 I love doing things like this !
 My husband thinks that since I love to make labels it was just a good excuse.
Then I could put one on the cookie tin. LOL If you could see the bottom
you could see my label....

This was looking in the cookie tin.
Inside is a dish towel, thread, needle, recipe card,
picture of the dish towel, pattern and chocolate. When I was little  my Mom did her stitching on dish towels to pillow cases and I would help her by being the winder. You only needed the winder when you needed to start a strand of floss. We would use match book cardboard  to wind the floss to and we would write the floss # on the top. So  if you look into the above picture you can see my version of the floss winder. I did use my blog logo for the top. hehehe

 

Tied up with ribbon and a cookie cutter added.
This was so much fun for me.
I loved thinking of what I do for my turn.
I really enjoy this club and the talented ladies in it.


We always always do show and tell and this is Judy's!
We as a group were doing this quilt and Judy is one of the few
women I know that always finishes and quickly.
She always does the most beautiful job too!


  A better view.


Lucy did this one!
 It was darling!
This one has a pocket on the back with clothes to dress the dolls....so cleaver!




Pat had 3...she was a very busy woman!!!This class just ended!!
I do have all the kits...


So much work! And such a beautiful job!
I am so jealous I wish mine was done...


This was even prettier in person.


I told you she was busy.


This is Becky and she even had stitching on hers.



I forgot to take a picture of the refreshments....
Pat brought cookies and fried ice cream....so yummy! Now you can see why
I love going to club....very talented and fun women!

Did Your Heart Sing Tuesday!


Sometimes you see a movie that makes you smile
and......
 sometimes its a character that makes you giggle.
 John Travolta getting a make over as a woman in Hairspray did just that for me.
I love him in everything he does but this show was so fun.
After watching you will want a make over too!

Praline Strips!

These are so good.
The tray of them didn't last to long. I would make them when you need alot quick.

Praline Strips


1 cup butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup chopped pecans

1 to 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

About 20 graham crackers (enough to cover the bottom of the pan)
Arrange graham crackers on ungreased 15 X 10 X 1 pan. Place butter and sugar in saucepan. Heat to boiling point; stir and boil for 2 minutes. Take off heat and stir in pecans. Spread mixture evenly over crackers. Bake at 350 for 7 to 10 minutes. Take out of oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. After they melt, spread chocolate over the top of the crackers with a knife. Cut each cracker into rectangles strips while warm. When cool...Enjoy !!
