The Smith Hotel's First Giveaway!!!

The Smith Hotel's First Giveaway!!!

It's cold, wet and no sun so I thought it would be nice to add some cheer into someone's life with a new tea towel that I made for Valentine's Day! 

I got a ruffler foot for my sewing machine with my Christmas money and have been playing with it.  It is going to take more practice so my tea towel is an "Experiment"-meaning don't look at the back of it!!!

The guy at the store where I bought the ruffler  told me that I would need to sit down and practice and drink a Diet Pepsi-

1. I drink Dr. Pepper (sorry for all those Diet Pepsi diehards).

2. I drank more than one(okay more like 3-well maybe 5).

3. I just about threw the whole thing in the pool(then I thought about how to get it-sewing machine-out of the cold pool). (Anyone else like the Maytag commercial with the wreaking ball and the refrigerator while looking glamorous in a flowing dress?-I don't have the flowing dress-darn).

4. Burlap isn't so easy to ruffle(who decided to try a double ruffle?).

TA-DA!!!! Behold a Valentines' Day tea towel with 2(yes 2) ruffles and I'm also including a Valentine's Day ornament thingamabob(with a white ribbon that didn't show up in the pictures)!

On the back is cute cupcake picture-so it's not just for Valentine's Day!
