Tea Towels Like Grandma's

Long before the terrycloth, mass-produced kitchen towels that now flood the market, were Grandma's soft cotton towels......the one-of-a-kind work cloths made lovingly by her own hands. That was back when kitchens smelled of warm sugar cookies, hot apple pies, freshly baked bread & lots of real soap & starch. How easily modern women have replaced Grandma's old-kitchen values with pre-packaged whatever.......& stamped terrycloth.

The time has come to take back Grandma's individuality, country charm & joy of homemaking! Let's start by making a few of these homey towels that color our kitchens with love!
I have prepared a tutorial for you at: http://documents.scribd.com/docs/yhrq0i829leqvnqjoad.pdf I would love to see pics of what you create....send those to jdahmen@ckt.net, & I will post them to the blog.
