stitch itch

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.  Thanks to Sublime Stitching, I’ve become obsessed.  Addicted.  It’s the only crafty thing I wanna do right now.  Just look at all this fun stuff people are making!  I made these flour sack tea-towels for Christmas gifts.  Two were for my mom, for whom I’m re-creating some of her vintage tea-towels:  she received quite a few as wedding gifts thirty years ago, so I’m replacing some of the worn-out ones.  Two more were for my sister, the “great and wonderful aunt Evie”, and one (the tattoo-inspired design) was for my brother, Cory, and his new wife, Hannah, to celebrate their wedding.  I made all the designs on my computer and transferred them to the towels.  Good thing this is a cheap hobby.  I’ve got the itch to embellish everything with a little embroidery…just try to stop me!

I also have come up with a name for my little crafty ‘business’:  Watched Pot.  That’s the little logo you see there, too.  Who knows, if I can crank out enough arts & crafts, I just may open an Etsy store.  Don’t hold your breath, though.  The watched pot never boils.

    I love them! You’re so talented, my dear. 🙂 P.S. The one in the middle looks like a tattoo. That’s pretty cool. Are you doing them from patterns? Or making them up as you go? Or both?

    Very cool! I think you’re on to something. My great grandmother did a lot of things similar to yours.
