Stitching Tea Towels

It’s been a busy weekend sewing baby quilts and mini wall quilts for my shop, but I had to finish these little cuties first so I could give you a sneak peek.

I love tea towels and have been stitching them for a few years now.  I use premium cotton muslin, hand cut, hand embroider and hand sew each one. I then prewash and press with a hot steamy iron for that vintage look and feel.

Halloween Party 2016

I love this time of year when I get to be super creative and decorate. We had a family party this year with special effects, lighting and of course fun food stuff. My favorite part of the party were the voodoo lights over the dining room table and the beautiful table setting that i finally finished collecting. The best part of decorating was reusing old decorations and finding new ways to display them. Enjoy the photos.

Voodoo lights over the dining room table, 3 views. The lighting really transformed the entire evening.
