I've been wanting to make the witchtowels that Bev from Flamingo Toes gave a tutorial on a few weeks back, but I couldn't find the right black dishtowels. I finally settled for microfiber towels from Home Goods Store that I bought yesterday, and I made three witchtowels.
Bev had a little more bling on her design, but I used lace instead of two rows of rick rack, so I think that's enough for a witch. If you're of my generation or older, you know the expression "There's snow down south." The fluffy white stuff being referred to is not the cold kind, but the silky kind. It's a way of saying "Your slip is showing." (Yep, I'm that old.) I wanted my witchtowels to have their slips showing. I might try putting a spider on one and see if I like it.
The towels don't have a gathered top, although you could do that, and I think it would look nice. I just liked the way they looked together for the picture. I'm giving these towels as Treats to my sister and and her son and daughter-in-law. The next one I make I'll give to my brother. They are cute, and they make me smile. Bev's blog is http://www.flamingotoes.com/. She has very good tutorials and is very creative. No more sewing witchtowels for me today. I'm witched out.
Thank you to all who have visited my blog for the Fall-into-Fall Blog Hop. Ive been trying to enter the giveaways, too. I've already discovered some new blogs that I will visit again.
The quilt top that I made for the Erik Homemade Coffee Break eZine Mystery Scrap Quilt Along is now posted on his website with a few of the quilts others made. There isn't a voting going on, but there will be a drawing for a Gingher seam ripper in December. That's pretty nice. This is my top with all of the borders on. I intend to quilt and finish it before the holidays. I did not like this top when I first finished it and now I love it.
I am going to participate in his Christmas Mystery Quilt Along, and it begins next week. If you are looking for a qal, you might consider this, because it's done at a comfortable pace, maybe even slow.
Hope everyone is well and happy. God Bless You.
