Tea Towel & Pot Holders

The tea towel was made from a border strip I bought from Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin.
Take a  towel  button hole  the strip on and they make nice gifts. You could put it on a bath towel too. Many kinds of designs they have in the store. Pot Holders made from scraps.


Here are some more coasters I made.

Dick's Birthday and presents.

My daughter Elaine, my son-in-law Jim, grandchildren Justin, Jared, Natalyn brought Dick my husband
82 presents and 1 to grow on for his birthday. They had them all wrapped up too. It took Dick over and hour to un wrap them and enjoy them. What a surprise they slipped them into the house without him knowing. We had lunch at the dinning room table, afterward  they said Grandpa go sit in your chair and then the fun began.

When Benjamin got to London the  Governor had sent no money, letters, or notes only empty
promises. This Block has an arrow on each side  no  4  arrows as the London roads are one-way
and two-way only.
