While visiting my Grandma in South Dakota this past summer, I rummaged through the attic and found this treasure hidden away:
My Grandma has quite a few embroidered flour sack dish towels that I just love. The simple designs add a kind of elegance to the kitchen. The flour sack towels can be found at a local bakery for sale...I happened to purchase mine this Christmas while at Sluy's Bakery in Poulsbo, WA, famous for their bread, donuts and Scandinavian treats. The hot iron transfers still had life left in them and easily stamped onto the towels. I made a few for my Mom for Christmas, including the pears below and I just finished the strawberries for my own kitchen...it's always hard for me to hold onto my crafts, typically I end up finding my project is the perfect gift...not this time :)
If you're interested in purchasing a towel or two, let me know and we can figure out the design and colors!
