A gift for next Christmas


I try to catch up on several projects when I am off from school.
Christmas 2009, I would like to gift my sister and my daughter with themed kitchen towels for every month. My neighbor so loved the set I gave her, I decided to make 2 more sets and a few in between for me. I can only make these when I am inspired since they take a bit of time and I have to search for the perfect applique.
This pattern is from "Acorn Hollow" by Art to Heart.
As I make them I will post my progress. I hope I can stay motivated. Last year I got stumped on July and just about rushed to get it done before Christmas.

This is very cute and a good idea for a gift. I may have to borrow your idea for my mom.

I think it is cheating to start so early though!
