Ok, you can take some time off!!

If you ever need help, give a hollar!!

This Sulky pen you linked to, is it fine point and does it wash out? Is this what you use?? I know too many questions. Sorry!

This is lovely! I too have found Ikea's textiles to be good for repurposing - I have their Christmas tablecloths from last year hanging as curtains in my daughter's bedroom, I've trimmed their blue cotton bedspreads with Japanese linen and wide rick-rack for curtains in the dining room, and trimmed the red and white teatowels with red and white check for kitchen curtains. Pretty and cheap! Can't wait to try the embroidery!

I have gotten those towels from Ikea before and embroidered on them. Like you said ,they are okay, but I like a tougher towel to embroider on. But, they are a bargain...just saw them the other day when we were at Ikea.
I think I have that pattern, too. What I can't find is the Sulky pen! I guess I have to order one.

This is GREAT!!! I have been looking for a project for the kids and I think that I've found it!

Cindy

Thank you for the towel idea. IKEA here I come.

Linda

I received a set of linen towels as a shower gift from my grandmother when we married 40 years ago. They are heavy with the red edge and she did seven, one for each day of the week. I considered them too precious to use but recently got them out to refresh and put out, at least for display. Have fun reorganizing!!

Alice

Oh ...I need to do that. Just shut down and clean up! What a devine idea. Good luck in the re-organizing!

Hi, googlereader led me here and when I saw that lovely Dutch blond cheese girl on her wooden shoes on the top of your blog, I was sure this was a good blog to visit. After all I am blond, Dutch and love cheese (I do not walk on wooden shoes though).
Nice to meet you.

Thanks for the embroidery pattern and the tip on the Ikea towels. I am new to your site...loving it!

kristin

That tip for the Ikea towels is fabulous! We dont have an Ikea here but I may have to stop by the next time we're out of town because that is an incredible deal :)

I love those Ikea towels--bought one for embroidery but put it into the kitchen to "test" and it's still testing. It's quite absorbent.

Rosa

I miss Ikea. The closest one to Nashville is Atlanta! Ouch.

Have to check this out in our nearest Ikea. One of my addictions by the way: buying towels...

Hazel

Your embroidery patterns are lovely, you are so talented.
Ikea is such a great shop, I miss not having one close by, luckily I did get to visit one in Boston last year.

Irma's Rose Cottage

What a great find for the price at IKEA. I will need to visit mine and get a supply.
Thanks for sharing.

Irma :)

Bridgette

I buy a bunch of these towels whenever i visit Ikea. Love, love, love them!

This pattern is lovely. Thank you so much for sharing it. I have been missing your blog. I have been so busy with the baby, I am glad I finally got to drop in. :)
