A portion of the rose bed from last year in the first blush
I adore travel tea towels, but I need something more absorbent in the kitchen for drying hands after washing. So I took these mint vintage towels, then I cut up some of my older terry cloth bath towels that had a few worn spots and smacked them together.
Well, maybe I didn't actually "smack" them, but I sewed them together like a pillow case and then did an extra stitch around the edge after turning them right side out so they won't warp in the wash.
So now I have pretty towels for drying my hands than I have been obsessively washing.
It's all about the pretty. And maybe the washing.
