Happy Mother's Day...

... to every woman out there! Each one of us was created in the original plan to be a mother so whether you have kids, choosen not to, haven't had the opportunity, have not been able to or just aren't old enough yet, here's to you this weekend!

The pic above is a photo of the tea towels I've made for my mom! She has become fairly computer savy, thanks to the grandkids, but I don't think she will see this before tomorrow evening!

These are a set of plain towels I bought at Walmart. Stamped on 'ticking' material I bought at my local fabric shop. They recommended it is the smoothest cotton in the store. It stamps beautifully!!!

Then just nice & easy sewing right onto the tea towel!

Here are the close ups of the other 2!

I used Nature's Silhoettes & Silhoette Blooms II from Cornish Heritage Farms!!!

AWESOME SETS!!!

These are gorgeous! I love the idea of stamping on the ticking and then sewing it to the tea towel. I think I would be afraid to do it any other way. Thanks so much for sharing and Happy Mother's Day to you!

Laura: I think that is the nicest thing anyone ever said on my blog! So, I'm pretty sure you don't need to be a mother to get'em!!!

Pam: I hope she liked them, I'm not so convinced! :)
