Strawberry tablecloth

Strawberry Tablecloth

I have been tending grandkids for 9 straight days and I am totally worn out!  I guess that is why you have your children when you are young, so that you can kind of keep up with them!  :)  They have been really good kids, but I am exhausted.  We went to the park, had picnics, went to our cabin overnight, had our Easter party, went to another Easter party, learned how to do a rainbow loom…made lots of bracelets, went shopping, went to church and I carpooled kids from school!   Oh and we also watched after 3 birds!  I forgot how much time and ENERGY it takes to keep up with little kids!  So my praise goes out to all of you that are raising small children…keep up the great job!

 Needless to say, I have not done many projects this last week, but I do have one very simple sewing project for you today:

Button Trimmed Dishtowels

I used to decorate for all the holidays when my children were at home, but now I usually decorate a lot  for Halloween… a little bit for Thanksgiving… for Christmas I still go all out… and then I kind of just go spring/Easter and Summer/Patriotic.

But I still like to have a few decorations and candies in my kitchen for each holiday!  So for Valentines day, I decided to make up these darling button trimmed dishtowels!  I got the supplies for these last spring, when we went on our trip to Arizona.  My husband basically took me on my very own, private, quilt shop hop on that trip!  We went to about 15 different quilt shops while we were there for Spring Baseball, it was like having the best of both worlds!  :)

So here are my button trimmed dishtowels:
