                                                                             Ode to Shez


Shez from Enjoying Life blog always inspires me,she seems to endlessly come up with lovely makes and swaps that she has joined.
A few weeks ago Shez placed her hand towels that she had made on her blog and they were lovely.Unfortunately I do not seem to know when to stop and now after this little lot I have (Docs orders) decided that I must limit myself to 6 of a make and then go down to 4  lol see how I go with this one!
 Anyway this is my last lot of makes....


 This is what happened I ended up with 36 hand towels and tea towels in all!!!
                                         These are my girlie water bottle holders...
                                                                Hand towels of all colours.
                                                         Tea towels the same,all colours...
 I only made 9 of these they are plastic bag holders........
                          Three black hand towels for our sons bathroom and it is black and grey....

Thanks Shez for your inspiration,I just have to remember that when I buy 1 towel I end up with 2 as they are halved.. so from here on in I will just buy the maximum of anything that makes 6 of an item lol.
I did default yesterday and bought a pack of 8 face washers ready for water bags,I will sell a lot at the Quilt Fair later in the year and many I give away ...

Have a wonderful Friday and an abundance of blessings to everyone.

    1. I know how it looks but these were all already cut out so I had to do them or pass them along,so chose to finish what I had started...

    1. Kath they are bags to put your water bottle in when going to work or walking,the children are allowed to take them to school as our weather is so hot they can have an icy cold water on their desks and these are terry towing so no drips...they are great,I have another 7 finishing off at the moment.
