Our niece is getting married in a week
so I've been stitching something fun to tuck in with the gift.
Fruity tea towels, what else?
Pattern from Hoop Love.
Flour sack towels here.
Did you ever receive embroidered tea towels or pillowcases as a wedding gift? I did. My sister-in-law made us pillowcases (praying hands) and Hubby's grandma loved to embroider things to give away. There were dresser scarves, pillowcases, and later on she made embroidered quilts for the babies. The volunteers at the nursing home put her embroidered blocks together for her and sewed them into quilts. I remember visiting Grandma one Sunday and she was not embroidering. She said she did not work on Sunday so she didn't embroider, but instead she wrote her letters on her day of rest. Grandma embroidered until she was 103. I hope I'm still embroidering at that age.
