Redwork Embroidery Kitchen Towels
I put the fabric borders on my kitchen towels yesterday. I loved working on the toweling yardage. The quilt shop I bought it from had a few other towels with different patterns along the sides so I think I need to try those next and maybe with a crochet border on each end rather than fabric.
Poppies are one of my favorite flowers and are so easy for me to grow. I thought the pattern would look good on a pillowcase too. I might try that.
We have a lot of cattails growing along the canal banks where I live so I like to draw them. Right now they are just fuzzy seedheads and I love to watch the soft seeds fly away. Like dandelions, but a lot more seeds.
We have lots of birds around here too. Jet blackbirds with bright yellow marks on their chests and some with orange-red marks. Lots of robins, doves, and funny quail mates that try to run across the road at the wrong time. So they all inspired my birdhouses in this one.
I grew up on a farm so I love fields, especially wheat. Hope you have a great weekend!
