I am one of the luck women on this planet that has a wonderful, caring, kind Mother-in-Law. Her birthday is next weekend and I have been working on these for her. I did a set of 2 to go with some other Irish themed items for her birthday present. Her Father's side of the family is from Ireland and it is something very sacred in our family. I hope she will like these as much as I liked working on them. I just hope she will use them! So many people think things hand done like this are "too pretty to use for everyday" but I say the opposite. I always promise to make new ones when these get stained or worn out.
I used our Vintage Striped Towels in green and I created the pattern from a Celtic image I had seen. There are so many neat Celtic knots out there, I just used our Transfer Pencil and traced this one.
I am a designer, stitcher and idea generator for Colonial Patterns. I LOVE my job--I get to do all of my favorite things everyday! I started this blog to be able to connect with our customers and get pattern ideas from the people who love stitching like me!
