Finally Done****More added****

Last year when I first started blogging or there-about
I started reading the Gracious Hospitality Blog.
I fell in love with her stitcheries, amongst many of her wonderful projects
she is a multi talented lady. What she can do with lavender is amazing.
It inspired me to want to start stitching. The stitching part has
been done on the Tea-Towel but I never hemmed it up or added the lace.
TODAY...I did...I feel like a proud mama. It takes so little...
I just had to share. Isn't that what we bloggers do. Take pictures of everything.
You will note the pincushion, made that a few weeks ago. I so, want to sew more,
the body (fibromyalgia) has not been cooperating.
So hooray. Something done, start to finish.
This is for Charissa and others
I looked up the definition of TEA TOWEL
It says a Towel used for drying dishes, usually made of cotton or linen.
Mine is made with those flour sack towels.

So cool! You did a great job! It's beautiful and lovely. How neat that you even have it hemmed. Now it's your turn to inspire me! I have a bin filled with stitched tea towels that need hemmed!! Thanks for the prod.

Enjoy a happy day and start stitchin' on the next one! LOL!

Deborah said...

Great job, Deby! I'm impressed.
I am not a sewer at all....and things like cross stitch just make me cross eyed!

Mishel said...

Beautiful!! Good for you!! : )

Lisa's Blessed A Latte said...

Beautiful!!!!Love the pin cushion too!!!

Susan said...

You did a beautiful job, Deby! I love your pincushion too. I've been eyeing them here lately - might have to try one soon.

The stitching is beautifully done and the tea-towel looks great, as does the colourful pinchusion!

A set of these would make lovely gifts for those you love :o)

I can also imagine how wonderful it must feel to have completed a job, start to finish!! Hurray!!!

Paula said...

Dear Deby,

Your tea towel is so pretty!!! You stitch beautifully! Is that a Crabapple Hill pattern? I love Meg's patterns! They are so sweet and feminine!

Your pincushion is so pretty too! I am praying for you. I know it is difficult to sew with that pain!

I am so glad you finished this and shared it with us. I need to go finish a stitchery I am working on, then as you said, take a picture to share because that is what we bloggers do!

The Lord bless you!

That came out so pretty!

lady jane said...

Oh my, you did a beautiful job, Deby! I never thought to add lace but it looks great.

The hard part, for me, is actually using the towels. How 'bout you?

Did you make the pincushion?

Sharon said...

oh, that is so cute! You did a wonderful job! I'm so glad you got it finished, doesn't it feel great!!!

Hugs, Sharon

Questions asked:
Yes, it is a Crabapple Hill pattern, Paula. She does do lovely things

Using the towel, I don't know....it will be hard, maybe in a basket or something..nothing major...aargh...that goes against what I believe in, so I am sure at some point I will. Someone else help me out on this dilema. Yes,I made the pincushion...So easy, Jane.The lace idea came from LaTeaDah.

Dallas, yes this would be a great idea for a gift.....

La Tea Dah...I hemmed another today and ironed on the design. I think I am going to do it all in RED, red work ....haven't decided yet. I am learning my new sewing machine.

Michelle, I wish I could accomplish all that you and Jack do.

Susan, easy pincushion,for sure. Looking forward to seeing your dolls.

Lisa, Thank you sister. I have had a productive day.

thank you for the compliment. When I get this burst of energy I took advantage of it today.

Embroidery is MUCH easier than cross stitch, you just follow the lines. NO counting.

thank you everyone for the comments...I rarely comment back as I just don't have the time but felt like I needed to answer some questions...
You have been so kind.

Nice Work! I love your machine and am sooooo envious, in a nice way. :>

Daughter of the King said...

I will trade you ...this for a night in your new guest room...LOL...
Thank you for the compliment.

Daughter of the King said...

Karen (angels).....thank you, I am still learning it. I have had a few rough weeks so I need much practice.
I need some quilting skills like YOU.

Donna said...

Quaint and lovely!

HOPE said...

Wonderful work Deby...and whatta machine! Wow you did get a nice one! I love my Husgvarna it practically sews for me!

Can you send me the directions for the pincushion..that has got to be one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Gorgeous fabric you used!!

Glad that our prayers have been answered and you felt up to getting this done.


Ginny said...

Dear Deby,
Your stitchery and pincushion are beautiful ~ what lovely work you do! I just saw a pincushion that looks similar to yours in a book I have recently checked out from the library!
I will enjoy spending some more time looking around your blog ~ thank you for visiting me today and for taking the time to leave me a comment ~ that was so sweet of you!

Have a blessed Friday,


P.S. We had some lovely sun later this afternoon ~ I'm hoping you did too!
