Lots of Pictures
At the beginning of this year, Kevin and I were planning on moving to Wyoming. Yet, it is amazing how God will change your plans at the blink of an eye. Leaving you very lost and confused until he begins to reveal to us his reasons. His first reason was made clear right away when my Mother become so sick and now almost 7 months later, she is still recovering. There are actually several other reasons but I can not go into any details. Just know they are a special blessing!
The picture above is the backing for the Rooster Mat that I created to put under our dish rack. Being that it is just the two of us, we wash our dishes by hand and then let them air dry. We have always just used an old towel folded beneath the rack and I went ahead and used a towel cut to this specific size instead of any batting. Then I quilted it using my walking foot with just some straight stitches and then stitched a double fold binding down using my Singer 301A. We are on the lookout for a couple more to use as parts machines or possibly if they are in really great shape, I will retire this one and use one of the others instead.
I still have a few more dish drain projects to create and I am also working on some hand embroidered Tea Towels (they will take me some time) and I would also like to make some pot holders also. If you can think of any item that I have forgotten that would be great in a kitchen, I would love to hear your idea! Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a marvelous day!
