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:

Ric Rac Dishtowels

I was planning on doing a post about meeting the Pioneer Woman today, but I am still waiting for one photo…so I am going to post these darling dishtowels instead!  :)

Is anyone out there still working on your goals that you set?  I am still using this book, by Connie Sokol, and I am loving the fact that I set a new goal each week and then I REWARD myself!  It really seems silly that a grown woman needs a reward in order to get her goals accomplished, but guess what?  It is working…so I will keep doing it if it works!  My goal for the week was to clean out two, (yes, I have two) dishtowel drawers!  I purged the old ones and washed and ironed all of my aprons and folded everything neatly.  It looks so good, that sometimes I just open the drawer to look at how wonderful it looks!  Well my reward was that I got to make two new dishtowels.  I had this fabric from our trip last March and I still had not made them up, so I told myself that was going to be my reward…to make these darling dishtowels.
