This weekend was my good friend Janet's birthday. She's a crafty girl, and homemade gift worthy, so I always try to make her a little something. This year, it was an embroidered flour sack towel for her cabin. It was freezing out this weekend, so I had some time to add a little extra to it.

That box of floss has been with me since my middle-school friendship bracelet making days.
It has a Rag Shop logo on it. Do they still have those?
|Perfect day for ice sculptures...no melting here!|

The kids are off from school for President's Day today, but I still snuck upstairs to do a little sewing while they played Pokemon.
I had a stack of 2.5" squares leftover from cutting my 16" strips from the width of my fabric, so I decided to put them to use. I was amazed that they made it all the way around with some to spare! I had already cut 3" strips from the navy dot, so I just cut those in half. I still plan on using the red check binding, but I like this better than my original plan for a solid border. Hopefully the boys will give me a little time for pressing it later on today. Progress!

Thread color suggestions for quilting? I'm thinking white may be too stark, and navy too dark, med. blue?
