Throughout the year





Throughout the year I work on Christmas gifts but no matter how hard I try I always come up short.
As many of my blog friends remember, I gifted my daughter 24 applique towels for her new home. I worked on them throughout the year.
Well, her friends always admire her towels and she wanted to gift her friends some towels so off to work I went.
Luckily I still had a few undecorated towels in my stash.
I have had a hard time finding good towels to applique this year.
So these are the towels I made for her.
Barb did a tutorial on adding a ruffle to towels and I made one. Very nice technique.

Those are fabulous, Betsy, and it's so sweet of you to do that for your daughter's friends. All the towels are really cute, and I'm thinking I'm going to have to try out Barb's technique!

Wishing you a blessed New Year, filled with love, joy, and peace!

XOXO,

Cyndi
