A Surprise in the Mail!


Today was one of those peaceful rainy days that I love!  I decided this morning to bake a pound cake for my dear neighbor who is always saving her delicious leftovers for me.

The highlight of my day was getting my mail.  Over the past several months I have gotten to be friends with Kathleen who writes Yesteryear Embroideries blog.  Kathleen does beautiful hand embroidered linens.  Today I received this embroidered dish towel from her.  Every embroidery stitch is perfect and I so appreciate her talent! 




Thank you, Kathleen, for this lovely gift!

  6. I'm wondering: Are you going to use the towel for dishes? But that's what they did in my grandmother's days. This post brought me back to a less hurried time and place. And made me remember my grandmother and her embroidered dishtowels. Thanks for this post.
