All stitched up

What a perfect fall weekend we had!

Dinner with friends on Friday night, a Kegnancy party (yep, exactly what you think it’d be: keg + pregnancy + baby shower all rolled into one) on Saturday afternoon and a little outing to the Madison County Covered Bridge Festival on Sunday.

I know I’m jumping the gun here, but with Baby B due at the beginning of December, I’m starting to pull together ideas for Christmas gifts. I put the wheels in motion for my co-workers gifts this weekend after snagging these great dish towels at IKEA.

Stitching onto any towel is super easy and I guarantee that anyone can do it! I usually print out the monogram/letter/image that I want to stitch and use a lightbox to transfer it to the cloth using a water erasable pen.

After the outline is ready and the cloth is secured in the hoop, I use a simple back stitch to follow the entire pattern.ย In no time flat – you have a personalized gift!
