Fall Tea Towels

Veteran's Day Towel

Halloween Towel

Turkey Towel


I recently purchased a Holiday Tea Towel Collection of embroidery designs by Anita Goodesign.  I did the embroidery on my Janome 11000.  The designs are made to resemble hand embroidery and I'm pleased with the results.  I searched for plain white tea towels but couldn't find any locally.  So I decided to make my own.  I purchased white cotton fabric at JoAnn's, cut them out, hemmed the edges, and added decorative fabric at the bottom of each towel.  These will be included in fall baskets for three of my friends. 

I haven't blogged much lately.  My days are spent driving my DH to physical therapy and doctor appointments as he recovers from knee replacement revision surgery.  He's hoping to be released to drive in two weeks.  He is recovering nicely from surgery this time.

We did see THE HELP last week.  I loved the book and was equally impressed with the movie.

Hi Pam, your towels are beautiful. A friend here has the same sort of embroidery machine and makes all kinds of holiday towels that she sells at crafts shows and for orders too. Glad to hear all is well with your husband. I'm off to bed as soon as my oldest son gets home -- he's late as usual. Best wishes, Tammy

Pam - what lovely towels! I hope to get an embroidery machine someday:) I'm also glad to hear your husband is doing well. So sorry he had to go through the surgery. I have been MIA this summer, my Mom struggled with illness this summer but she is doing great now! We have been blessed:) I'm back to blogging land and looking forward to catching up with my friends. Blessings!

I am so impressed with these towels. I clicked on them to enlarge them, and it's hard to tell that they weren't hand done. Very nice job!
Happy to hear that your husband is on the mend.
