Saturday changes

Our little graduates. They had a nice little group. I couldn't get back enough to get the whole group so I just got my one of my very special boys in grandma's life.
I thought I would show you a couple of the tea towels that will soon be going into my etsy shop. They were an easy project to do in the motel room while it was raining and I didn't want to drive because it was raining to hard.

The picture of the Branson Belle boat dock was taken while we were riding on the Duck's in the rain. My hubby wanted to do something so this was one thing we could do in the rain giving me a break from driving in the rain. You can see the rain drops on the picture.










Being I can't work in the yard like I planned, I thought I would show you a picture of the swan that was on our bed when we checked on our trip. It is made out of towels and wash clothes. They said that they have a lot of fun making them for their guest.

Soooo sweet, you just want to reach thru the screen and give a hug! Did you get teary? I always do...they just touch my heart so. I did the same thing when my own where in their progams or graduating....DH would just shake his head and put his arm around me! lol!

How unique to find the towels like that.....and how nice. I bet it was hard to take them apart to use....your tea towels are very pretty, as always!

Love it when you come for a little chat, so thank you!

How darling are those boys!!! I am laughing at your towel because the last time we took a trip we have a different towel animal to look forward to each night. It was pretty funny! I always wanted to learn how to fold them!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Hi Shirley,
Your graduating grandson is so handsome! I always tear up at these events. I wish we could keep them little longer - time seems to go so fast - one just turns around and the little ones you could hold on your lap and love are grown!
Thanks for sharing the picture. Also the one of the towel swan - such a special touch for your room.
Your embroidery towels are lovely, as is all of your embroidery.

Hi Shirley,
Oh the little graduates are darling in the caps and gowns. Your little guy it too cute.
I remember my son going through this when he was little many moons ago. What sweet memories you brought back with your pic.

Love your tea towels. Your work is gorgeous!! The swan made from towels is wonderful. I would love to make those when I have company.

Hope you came through the rains okay. I don't like to drive in it either.

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments.
Hope you have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
