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.

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stitching! --Kristen
