And look what I just made in a few hours of free time! I took a few kitchen towels and trimmed them with left-over jelly roll strips! These were so easy to make. I just turned under the edges of the jelly roll strips (2 1/2″ wide strips) 1/4″, pressed under the edges and stitched on the strip. I added some trim and they were finished! Someone on my list just might find these under the tree!
Taupe & Beige Kitchen Towels!

Red & White Stripe Kitchen Towels! Just in time for Christmas!
And speaking of crafty, have you visited my Snowbound group lately? Take a look at what they’ve been doing!
Don’t forget to make these free holiday tags from Bunny Hill. There’s still time! Lori suggested adding a bit of glitter to the tags. How cute would that be?
Oh, and if you want the same towels I used you can find them here on my web site. I ordered them at Quilt Market about 10 minutes before it ended. Just couldn’t pass up the Dunroven House booth and it was right on the way to checkout. They have the best towels!
I’ll be cooking a GREAT Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday for my family with all the trimmings. Has to be great so I can bribe my husband with food on Friday. He’ll be decorating and hanging my Snowbound quilt!
Are you cooking this year? Have you made anything you just love and have a hard time parting with? Share with me! I’d love to hear from you!
I’ll give thanks this Thanksgiving week for all my DIY friends out in blog land! You are simply the best!
