|I love these kitchen towels|
but my kitchen towels get
abused far too often
to look this pretty!
I use 100% cotton flour sack towels
that can withstand regular bleaching.
These pretty towels would not last a month
in my kitchen, sadly.

to my cosy collection
that I'll be selling
at a local show next month!
|I have many more items to finish|
from now until then!
|I really like the centre on this one!|

|I had started this project|
some month ago
and became overwhelmed with it...
|I used a steel crochet hook 1.15mm|
for this project
|And for the project on the right|
I used a size steel hook 1.5mm
for a slightly larger version of
the same pattern
|My favourite part of this work|
is the center six point flower/star
|All this work here has only used|
chain, double and half-double crochet stitches.
|but this pattern is tedious!|
|So, I gave up on this project a few months ago.|

|I miss summer days near the pacific ocean!|
The 'rock beach' that was my favorite
place to find paintable surfaces
|The sound of the waves upon the sand|
|The feel of the sand between my toes|
just after the surf had been there.
I think I took for granted
the pacific ocean
while I lived so very close to it
a few years back.

it is just
easier to resort
the emotions are swelling up
and sadness is taking over!

|Dachshunds are wonderful dogs!|
However, I cannot imagine taking
this many out for a stroll
especially since I know
This really is the temperament of
the 2 dachshunds
I live with!
