"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong."

Finished Project

I've been anxious to get to started on stitching some of my homespun towels for Autumn so of course this past weekend I did just that.  I used unbleached muslin for the stitching area that I first dyed in a mixture of coffee and vanilla which was then dried out in the oven to give it an old primitive look....and it doesn't smell so bad either!  These are really quick to stitch up and make for great additions for my holiday gift baskets which usually included homemade apple and pumpkin butters and other homemade goodies.  I'll be stitching more of these this week and I'll be adding some to my Etsy shoppe later this month as well along with other autumn items.
