Show and Tell Friday

It's Friday...and I'm on vacation for the next week.  I'm so excited.  We aren't going anywhere, we are staying home. :)  I love staying at home vacations.  At the end of the week I'm not tired from trying to fit in too many things and hopefully, hopefully, hopefully I will actually finish a few projects that need some TLC.

The other day after looking at some of my kitchen towels I thought it was high time I treated myself to a new one.  I found this free pattern at http://www.birdbraindesigns.net/FreeDesigns/2011_06/547_Freebie-AllThingsGrowWithLoveTeaTowel.pdf.  I love Bird Brain Designs...and who doesn't love a free pattern?  I then took my Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon and purchased a towel.  The pattern suggests using #8 perle cotton, but I used three strands of DMC thread instead as I don't have a shop in town that supplies the perle cotton.  I finished it late last night and it is now looking clean and pretty in my kitchen..for how long (clean), that remains to be seen. 

I am linking today for the first time to Show and Tell Friday at http://romantichome.blogspot.com/


Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stitching!  --Kristen
