Sew Crafty Friday for February 8
For Sew Crafty Friday today, I have really just one thing to share. I finally finished the last flour sack towel in the "Fine Chinaware" set of day-of-the week towels. It's the one for Sunday:
I mentioned last week that I was embroidering this towel with 3 strands of floss (rather than the 2 strands I used on all the previous sets). It really seemed to me to look richer and brighter than the others. I was afraid there would be a huge difference seeing the two towels side by side. As you can see, although the Sunday towel's embroidery does look somewhat richer and brighter, it really isn't a stark contrast next to Wednesday's towel. From here on out though (and I do plan to do a set of these for myself) I think I will use the 3 strands.
I also managed to finish my last belated Christmas gift this week! That feels like a great accomplishment. And I've also spent some time backstitching on my "Country Baking" sampler.
What about you? Remember, if you’ve done any crafting this week, even if you haven’t actually completed anything, head on over to Waiting for Him and share your projects. It’s such fun and so inspiring to see what others are working on.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
