My poor old flour sack dish towels need to be retired. Some are stained, most have holes; they're done. I received them from my Mom many many moons ago.
I looked for flour sack dish towels locally without luck and ended up buying a six-pack from JoAnn.com. My mistake was putting the new towels in my craft room instead of throwing it in the laundry basket. The 30" x 34" bright white fabric just needed a little something so I pulled out my binder of DMC Floss (still in use from my cross-stitchin' days) to embroider a few lazy daisy stitches. Nothing fancy. Just a flower or two.
I've been working on it for a few weeks now. Adding a stitch here and there.
Today, I'm going to have to say they're done and ready to go in the wash. Otherwise, we'll be air-drying our dishes from now on. And, isn't it funny, I think the other three look just fine all plain and white.
