Red Ticking and a french towel

Red Ticking.... remember my post and my new pillows
had made for my porch... well, this has never happened before.
I left them out overnight and the next morning UGH!!! a big hole in my pillow.

Well thank goodness, I still had yardage left. So I made a new cover.
Note to Linda take in cushions at night...

Today was a cold wet day so I spent some time in my sewing studio.
Guess what I made .
A cute ruffled tea towel made of red ticking.

I added on a cute french graphic( thanks to Graphic Fairy)  to the towel and hung it in the kitchen on
my antique pine cupboard.

Then tried it on the cute bistro table.

 Don't you just love red ticking!!

I hope where you are your day is filled with warmth and sun.

Have a great week . Thanks for stopping by.
