Been Sew Busy

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, since HOTH - Roosters and Chickens Party, I've been sew busy! I showed you my giveaway that I made ~ the Rooster pillow and then the little tea towels! You can see them HERE if you'd like.


Well, I decided that I needed a couple of these little tea towels for myself. So, I continued to sew! :)

Thought I would share this since I was asked why is a tea towel called a tea towel:

A tea towel is a cloth which is intended for the specific use of drying dishes and cutlery after they have been washed. In addition, clean tea towels may be spread over a tea tray beforetea things are put onto it, or used to cover warm scones or a tea pot to prevent heat loss.
Not to brag on myself or anything, but isn't this just the sweetest little tea towel? I love the fabric with the outlined Roosters! Sew cute.



And the ruffles! I love these over the top ruffles. Sew cute! Now I thought I'd be a little lazy and not sew and turn my ruffles like I did for my giveaway towels. I don't have a serger machine so I just used a zigzag stitch for the hems. Looks pretty good but took me 3 times as long! Well, my tiny talented fingers messed up that time. But I had started zigzagging sew I just continued!



Well, it was time to set up a vignette with my sew sweet tea towels! I'm sew talented like this you know! :) I'm teasing...sort of! :)




Ta Dah!!

Oh, this time of the year is when these most delicious Rainier cherries are in season. I love them! They are so sweet and yummy! Of course the blueberries are very delicious this year too!

Here's a little artsy snap for you! A little glass filled with cherry! :) Get it? Cherry - Sherry! Am I good or what! :)



Oh, and I cannot leave out the Mr. & Mrs. Charming pair, aren't they and so elegant! I was blessed with these two a few years ago from a sweet blogging friend.



There you have it! My sew sweet little Rooster tea towel vignette. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll eat my fruit.














Be a bunch of sweeties,

Shelia ;)



I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


A Hard Day's Night


It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're gonna give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel okay
When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight,tight,yeah
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright


So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel okay
When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight,all through the night,yeah

It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright
You know I feel alright
You know I feel alright...
