Be Still…. And Know

Be still and know bottom

Have I ever mentioned that I really love to make dishtowels?? 

At my wedding shower (like a billion years ago, nonetheless), my mom talked about how you should always pray for the women in your life when you do your dishes.  She gave everyone in attendance a dishtowel and asked them to pray for me when they used it.  Every since then, I haven’t been able to look at a dishtowel the same way!

So, here is my first of several posts about these lovely little items that all of us use on a daily basis.

Be still and know ruffle bottom

I designed and made this particular towel for a dear friend for Valentine’s day (she also happens to be Finley’s teacher at “school”).

I found the message to be fitting for this time of year… just a little reminder that we sometimes have to shut the noise around us out so we can hear what God wants to say.

I’m totally in love with this shabby ruffle, btw :)

Be still and know close

I need this reminder, like every day, so I made one for myself (I’ve actually been making stuff for myself lately… wow, what a concept!).  I wash it as soon as it’s dirty and hang it right back up!!  I’m not really a fan of laundry (I’ve actually been known to buy new socks so I didn’t haven’t to sort through the old ones… horribly wasteful, I know) so that is a HUGE accomplishment for me!!

It makes me smile.

AND we all need things in life that make us smile. :)

Linking up to a few of these par-tays!!


This is such a great project! You are very talented. I love the memories you shared about your mother's words. They were very inspirational. Thanks for sharing!

Awesome as usual.. and you must have really come to adore dish towels over the past few days, weeks.... I am a guilty user of paper towels and am pretty sure I am keeping Bounty in business... but your towels are SO pretty and love the saying. Its awesome!

Can we get a dish towel tute???

You do beautiful work, my friend! I'm hosting a blog hop party on my blog this friday. I hope you will stop over and say hi...keep up the great work!

LOVE IT! It's gorgeous...Thanks for linking up to Mad Skills Monday!

Love the dish towel. I love the saying.

I am not a big fan of laundry either. I'm really not a fan now that my dryer is broken and I have to take all of our clothes to the laundromat to dry them. If my dryer ever gets fixed, I think I'll be a fan then. I miss my dryer.

I love this idea for *thoughtfully* washing the dishes!

what a cute idea with the prayer & dish towel connection. I love yours, the ruffle at the bottom is too cute!

Thanks for linking up to Your Whims Wednesday! Hope to see ya again later this week :)

Gorgeous dishtowel Liberty! It is wonderful to have little messages around like this one to keep things in perspective. I know what you mean about making something for yourself. I can't remember the last time I did that! ~Val

Beautiful work and I just love the message from your mother. That is such a beautiful thing and great idea for a wedding shower. Thank you for sharing =)

Such sweet memories. I love the idea -- I call this sheltering. And the towel is just beautiful. One of my favorite verses.
