Syd, who knows my love of teapots and all things vintage, found these iron on appliques (made of fabric) at a local thrift store (DI). They are just darling. The original tag is still on one of them and it says "Grants" .49 cents. How great is that? There are 2 packages and so I will use one to make and applique some kitchen towels. I can put rick rack on them and they will look great in my "new" kitchen (sorta like the ones below). I think the other package I will keep on my shelf as a fun decoration. Thanks girls. I love both gifts.
We had sunshine today and no snow so I could actually get out and do a few things. I went to Broadbents in Lehi. Its a very old store that has a great quilt shop. Laurel from our quilt group was working there today. Its always fun to see a friend at the quilt store. I saw these valentine kitchen towels from Moda and had to get them. How could I pass up vintage valentines? They are so sweet. I would have hung them in the kitchen when I got home but Dave and Laurie have been in there all day hanging cupboard doors and polishing the door pulls. So I'll wait until that is all done. Yay.
At our quilt group Tuesday they talked about this sizing and what a great product it is as an alternative to starch. Our group is making 'Dear Jane' and 'Omigosh' (scroll down the page until you see Omigosh) quilts this year and it helps prep the fabric to cut the teeny tiny strips required for these quilts. I got the one that smells like citrus. We'll have to see how it works. I have committed to make only a doll sized 'Omigosh'. Everyone says they are so fun but I'm scared to death. I always like to learn new things though so I will try it. - nanette
Most of the kitchen cabinets are on!! So I hung my new towels.
