New Dish Towels


What woman doesn't like new dish towels?

 Here are ten new ones that I made for spring.


I'm in love with Hexies :) 


I'm in love with Red-Work, too.


These will make dish washing fun again :)

 Coffee anyone?















Well, This is what I've been doing,
this and working on my hexie quilt.

All is well in my world
and
I hope that all is well in yours :)

Have a wonderful day 
and please leave a comment 
if you have the time.

 Keep Smiling

Your blogging sister, 
Connie :)

    1. Thank you so much . . . my old ones are getting worn and they aren't cute or pretty at all. I thought it was time to step it up, LOL

  2. I LOVE these Connie. Your red embroidery work is beautiful. I must admit to having a tea towel fettish (I have a whole shelf full in my linen close)t. They brighten up a kitchen. We had hearts until last week and now we have different variations of polka dots.

    1. Hi Cindy, isn't it wonderful to have little dishwashers around the house:) I love hearing that children are given chores. I really believe that families that work together to help one another with the responsibilities of running a home and keeping it nice, have closer bonds. Not, only to family but it teaches them about community and giving as well. Your a good Mom :)

  23. These are all beautiful, but I particularly like the chicken ones. I have a thing about bathroom towels and tea-towels (our word for dish towels), I am always falling in lovely with pretty, colourful ones and have to seriously stop buying them. I think I have about a dozen different bath towels just for the two of us! xxx

  25. Well aren't we the pair....you're making dish towels and really very nice ones and I am crocheting dish cloths. I just started doing it. It's been pretty relaxing while watching the olympics....may just continue this. Thinking of putting a few cloths in my Etsy store....but that will be down the road a piece. I need to stock up my drawer with dish cloths first. Cheaper to make my own then to buy them now. Have a great day. I should pull out my hex punches and make a few cards....you would like them for sure. Have a great day and weekend.

  30. It's not hard to tell how much you enjoy making useful, yet fancy things for around the home. All the towels are nice and the red and white ones with the chickens look like vintage country towels.

  33. Hi Connie x your tea towels look absolutely fabulous. The best tea towels I ever bought were American. I used to buy loafs when on holiday in Florida when my son was a huge Disney fan.
