Finished object Friday

Yeah it is Friday.  I did finish the linen towels in time for the Birthday Deadline.  They are for my mom and match a lot of her colors and rooms.  I think there turned out very nice, a bit stiff but they will get softer if with usage and washing (just throw in the washer)l  Here are some closer looks along with one I did in orange that isn't big enough but I'll use it in my kitchen.

This is an arrowhead lace pattern, pretty easy to follow.

Thank you all for the good wishes on the new job.  It is okay.  It is a consulting job, running a strategic planning process.  Definitely a temporary job, maybe two months, maybe a bit more but not something that will turn into full time.  Unfortunately they are a month behind in the planning work and the deadline is the end of the month.  We'll see where it leads but I'm glad to have it.  Not over joyed as you can tell but grateful.

Have a great Friday and head over to Tami's to see all the great finished objects.

  7. I would love to have some towels that beautiful---of course, I'd consider them too nice to use and just drape them around for pretty value, probably. ;) The arrowhead lace pattern is just lovely.
