Creative week!

Oh Boy! I completed 5 more tea towels, found several new places to get embroidery designs, planted tomatoes and had Tea with sandwiches and fresh scones with my hubby this week.

I'm so excited to find Andrea Zuill of Badbird--She's super creative and she shares a new embroidery design each month for free.Here's one of my tea towels done with one of her free designs!

I did another tea towel with one of BadBird's little girl images. It's actually a print that she sells and I adapted it to an embroidery. Here it is:

She's got a bit of the grumps about her but I just loved doing all that great hair!

Finally, we got a weekend with out rain! This is such a big deal here in the Pacific Northwest this year. We have been so soggy that every everyone was getting a bit grumpy. People's plants have either been drowned or eaten by giant ninja slugs.

We planted our tomato plants in pots this weekend and a couple peppers and some spaghetti squash. Not a lot of stuff but hopefully we will have some yummy veggies and not feed the sneaky slugs.

And in celebration of the great weather this weekend my hubby and I had Tea on the front porch. We finished the meal with these homemade scones!

Take care, be well and remember to do something creative!

I want some of those scones! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm trying to keep up with creative every day but not overwhelm readers. I enjoyed this post of yours - just a good everyday day.

I want the tea towels, and the scones... with whipped cream, of course. I have an addiction to tea towels. (ok AND scones) Yummy blog!

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. It helped a lot.

I love your tea towels especially the grumpy little girl. She definitely made me smile.

Tea and scones on the front porch sounds great. I remember so many wonderful afternoons on our front porch as a teenager playing cards. Porches seem to create wonderful memories. Have a great week.

Your embroideries are wonderful. I also love that hair. But I'm not sure I could bring myself to use tea towels that had so much work in them and looked so beautiful!

it is so awesome to see such an old and old-fashioned thing like embroidery updated so magically by your work! these designs, the girl with the crown and this bird are absolutely wondrous! i might have to get out my embroidery floss!
