A Sneak Peek For Laurie

Well, I've been working on that fabulous mystery gift that Laurie at Magpie Ethel has won. All those Where Women Create posts inspired me to tidy The Playroom and finish this project! This is a sneak peak of the trim that I've just sewn on to this little ol' vintage style dishtowel. I love the fun, cheery colors-- they remind me so much of Laurie!
Yes, yes, yes... I did embroider a vintage design on the towel-- but I want it to be a surprise for Laurie! I will post a picture of it (along with the other little goodies I send her) as soon as I know that she's received it-- because, you know-- it's a fabulous mystery gift.

Oh lookie here--Haggie's come by to see what's going on. Or is he just eyeing the things on the table?!
Oh Haggie, it's just some of my stitchin' essentials... pincushion, scissors, and Neccos. Yes, Neccos. It's a little sweet, without being sticky-- the perfect crafty snack!

So wonderful Jill. I love the Where women create books. yummy little non sticky snack :)
I have my tickets all ready for the midnight showing of Eclipse. I'm taking my daughters. Wish you could come too! Have a lovely weekend. Hugs~ Kim

Jill, I can't wait to see what you put on the towels. Did you make the felt pincushion? It's really cute!

Jill said...

Oh, I wish that I could claim to have made that adorable pincushion-- but I can't. I found it at JoAnn's.
I can't wait to show off the image on the towel!

Can't wait to see the towel design!
I love Neccos. Haven't had any in a long time!
I like your pincushion too. Wish I had a pretty sewing machine like yours... maybe I would sew more often if I did? LOL

I can't wait to see the towel design! I'm sure it is just too cute for words :) Haggie- I want to give you a real life hug and lots of belly scratches, but I'll have to settle for sending you some in this comment ♥

Ah, sweet! Lucky Laurie! BTW, Neccos were the tea party food when I was little. Still love them.
Hugs to you and Haggie. <3
