The ladies I travelled with thought it was a great idea too so I offered to make their aprons for them. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any tea towels in Nassau, but I did find some in Bermuda, the Azores, and the UK. Here are a few I made from the Azores...
And a few are yet to be made into aprons! I think my favorite is the Bermuda towel...we saw so many houses that were so neat and tidy and colorful just like the house on the towel.
My Stonehenge towel will have to be made into a half apron or the rocks will be sideways!
And of course a towel showing the historical sights in London was a must. What a great way to help me remember our whirlwind tour of the city...just hope I don't spill anything on it!
I have one more towel from the Azores waiting to be made into an apron. This towel was a gift from one of my travelling buddies. Isn't the machine embroidery gorgeous!
Guess I better spend more time in the kitchen!
Before I went on the trip, I made myself a small zippered pouch to take with me to hold all my little things. I machine quilted the fabric in a cross hatch design and made a little pocket for the inside.
I even attached a label too, just in case I forgot who I was. I filled it to the brim with anything that would fit and it came with me everywhere I went!
I had some fun in my sewing room lately with left over scraps of red and cream...not sure where I am going with this, but will just keep making the blocks for awhile longer. Perhaps it will be a table topper or a doll quilt...so many options!
It's a great day for quilting!
