Weekend Project

Sharing a quick weekend project:
I've had these flour sack towels in my stash of to-do projects for ages.  Possibly even before the dawn of time.
I'm a bit toddler like.  Easily distracted.  The thrill of a new idea sends me off running.  Thus, a lot of things wait in the wings. Forever.
Glad to say I've got these done (of course now I want to make oodles more).
A vintage tablecloth provided the flowers.  I put some interfacing on the back for stability.
The best thing about these flowers?
They do not make my throat itchy, my eyes water or require weeding!
These and several more will be for sale in my booth at the upcoming Rural Society
show in May.  Check out their page and make sure to view the current Country Living magazine where this fantastic farm is featured!
In typical toddler fashion I'm moving on.  The addition of this:
Means we are about to begin another exciting round of "Musical Furniture"!
I am soooo very smitten.
Check my FB page for a photo of the pair of these vintage Baker's Racks I scored at auction on Saturday.
Remember, you still have time to enter the Gorilla Glue giveaway (here ).

WOW, I've only ever seen those baker's racks in magazines. What an amazing find! Can't wait to see what kinds of goodies you're going to fill the shelves with. Love the towel too, and I only wish I wasn't so wimpy about cutting up my stained tablecloths!
Happy REDnesday,
Carol

The towels are super cool. I love anything to do with vintage tablecloths and since so often they are stained, this makes perfect sense! I'll look you up at the sale. I can't wait to go!

I love this project. Thanks for sharing. I collect old linens and there are always some that can't be saved and need to be cut up for other projects. These rose towels are perfect.

Love the towel vignette, and I'm just plain green with envy over that bakers rack. Want!!!
I would love for you to come link it up at my Linky party, "Cowgirl Up!", still going strong at the Farmhouse Porch.

there's nothing better than flour sacks to make dishtowels out of. And, yours are so pretty!
