"Jelly Roll Scraps Projects and some new charts."

Hello,

I was on a mission to use up the pieces left over from making the Umbrella Table Topper. There were two of the triangular sections and a few scraps. This is what I used them on
.

 Matching hand and tea towels.


 It was great to a few projects made with the scraps. These will be the first finishes for September. I don't know how many more I will have this month. My Brother is sick. I have booked the machine in for a service but it seems that there are a lot of sick machines. It will be a couple of weeks before it can be fixed. I did find my last service docket for this machine and it was July 2009. So I suppose it has done so well to last this long without any problems.


Good fortune was on my side a few weeks back. I won a $20.00 gift voucher from Jenni to spend at the Stitching Post. I purchased a bit more than the voucher was worth.. You had to guess what Jenni was cross stitching and it was a Pink Flamingo.

Happy days.
Bev C

Hi Bev,
I also saw your last post and those Santa embroideries are too funny.
Just love your tea towel set. A great project for using up some good scraps. Sorry to hear about your machine. You have put it to good use in the past months. Hope it is feeling better soon.
Have a wonderful week.
Blessings,
