Well, I DO! These are extra large flour sack towels that I have hand dyed and hand stenciled. They are not showing up that "stained" in the picture...sorry. I cooked up 12 more of these this morning and I am getting ready to stencil 'em up. I have many different designs...from a really cool "Olde Crow Homestead" to "The Simple Country Life". I also take antique linen, dye it up and stencil on that also. These are big enough for a tablecloth on a small table or I use them as the centerpiece on a large table, usually with an old bucket filled with bittersweet. These "Dirty Table Throws" ...as I call them...are pretty neat.
It's raining here today and I am kinda glad...means that I will not be heading out and can head into the home shop instead of running the roads. Let's see...so far this morning I have cooked the table throws, cooked my Liberty pillow, cooked Elda, made grubby tags, spent time chit chattin' with Lee before I sent him off to work, done dishes and cleaned a bathroom...I don't know where I got the sudden burst of energy...I just hope it will last till bedtime!!!lol
Well my friends, I am off to paint...I actually found time last night to make 2 Noodle Boards...I love working with wood also and together Lee and I have drawn up several new pieces of furniture to make and take to the show in July!!
Stay happy...and dry.
