Tea Towels and dropcloth

Do you think I have gone crazy?
 Well, I have definitely kept myself busy.
I have made a bunch of tea towels (80+), dropcloth coasters and placemats, for the Christmas Marketplace that my Church is hosting the first weekend in December.
This is after I washed them all!
Some examples of the tea towels that 

I recently made.
All the images were found at The Graphics Fairy, even if I ended up adapting most of the writings and images.
Definitely tons of inspiration on her blog!




The "funny" thing is that just last week I had to schedule my 3rd Kidney stones surgery of this year...the day before the Christmas Marketplace.
This is going to be fun :)
Click on this projects below to see how to make the coasters & placemats,
and
the towels.



Hopefully it will all sell!

Stay Frugal,

Your tea towels and coasters are so pretty--I really want to try making some! I hope all goes well with the surgery--gotta love the timing of it all, right?

Those are all so pretty. I think you should start making those to sell on Etsy too! You could link it to your blog. I'd buy from you! I love all of it! So sorry to hear that you're having more kidney stone problems. Somehow, (knock on wood) I haven't experienced those yet. I pray I never do. I've heard they're awful!

I had a kidney stone when I was about 13 but passed it, so I know how you feel, I hope everything goes well for you with the surgery!
I love, love the tea towels and coasters, if you ever decide to sell I'll be first in line to buy:) Great job on them!

If you're a bit crazy than I am too, because I love what you did and I appreciate how much time goes into all that. It's a creative streak that you're blessed with. Also, I'm so sorry to hear about your surgery, I'll be saying a prayer for you, it's not a great time of the year to be going through all that, but at least you're getting it over with. Keep us posted.
