Sunday Creation

I worked hard
I played hard
this weekend.

We had our family reunion yesterday.
I was there from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
We were having a great time!
I dearly love both sides of my family.
Each side brings something unique
and all of it put together
made a whole bundle of goodness
in my sister, brother & myself.

Today I went into work for a little over 6 hours.
There's just something to be said for a nice, quiet office.
No phones.
No emails.
Just peace & quiet.
Good concentrating time.
I feel under control.
(OK...that's tonight...ask me again when I get home from work tomorrow night.  LOL)

So tonight I took some time to sew a little something together
with the help our of family cat, K.C.
(short for Killer Cat if you remember me talking about her before)
This little gal never..........
forgets when she's been upset with you.
She takes pride in plotting her revenge.
That's what we love about her.
You never know when it's your turn to receive
the wrath of K.C.

Lucky for me, I was in her good graces tonight.
I was able to accomplish this little goodie
that Amy from Amy Made That!
shared on her blog.
(PLEASE don't look at my dirty oven!!)

You can see Amy's towels here. 
They are beautiful! 
I love the bright colors she used.
I need to make a couple more of these, but
my towel & ribbon supply are a bit sparse.

Here's a close up of the accent fabric.

I don't know the name of it
(it's something I've had in my stash for a while),
but I know it's from Debbie Mumm.

These would make great Christmas gifts!

If you would like to take a hand at this,
lucky for us, Amy found the tutorial on it.
You can find it here.

So thank you, Amy, for giving me a little project
I could accomplish in my small window of free time!

What would we do without the hi-jinx of cats to remind us that we are not the center of the universe?

Glad you had all that time with family! Have a great week.

Your tea towel is so cute! I'm so glad I was able to point you toward a project to make for your own reward. Thanks for linking to mine, and I hope you'll have fun making more towels! {I can't stop now.}

Now, that is super cute. I have a bunch of towels and always need ideas for my secretaries for Christmas. This would be great. Thanks for sharing!
