Good Afternoon

Hello friends~I hope you have all had a wonderful Friday. I spent mine in the little town we live nearest to--20 miles northeast of us--and got a bit of grocery shopping done, as well as had a nice visit with my parents. I met my dh on his lunch hour and we went to the park and did a little walking. I was excited to see that the little 'spring beauty' flowers have sprung up all over the ground, as well as some clover. Spring is certainly on its way!

I made these dish towels yesterday. I've never made them before, but they were easier than I had thought and I like the idea of 'customizing' the colors to go with my kitchen. Also, I really detest those 'terry' dish towels that they sell at Wal Mart~they just do not dry anything! I think I will be making my own 100% cotton towels from now on.

Everyone have a great weekend!



  1. You did great on those towels and I know how you feel about the ones at Walmart. They are very nice. Keep up the good work. Thanks for visiting my blog. I really enjoy reading all the comments and I too have writers block since I am not all that good at it, Sue was the writer inthe family. Well, Have a great weekend.

  2. Hi,
    I wanted to meet another Rosemary
    I see you separate the two names.
    I like your blog.
    Visit me sometime,

  3. Your dishtowels turned out really nice Rose Mary! I loved the photo of your sweet cat in the last post :-}

  4. I know just the terry cloth WalMart towels you were talking about-- and you're right-- they absorb nothing.

    Your towels turned out so cute, and if they're as functional as they are cute and cottagey, you're really accomplished something! :)

  5. Hi Rosemary, are you snowed in too? It's still snowing and the sun is coming out now, so odd for March! We got to have a least 5 inches so far. I love those hand towels, did you use a pattern? I've been wanting to make some, do tell how! They are adorable!

  6. So you have been behind in your blogging also :)

    Glad you had a nice visit with your parents. I sure do miss ours.

    I hope you are right that spring is on the way. It can't come any sooner for me :)

    Take care,
