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.
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 :)
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!!
