Embroidery Companion Sew Along Month One Winner!

Hello Lovelies,

We have internet connection back here finally.  Sorry I wasn't able to get into this space to announce the giveaway winner for the Sew Along.  But as only one person entered it shouldn't be too much of a surprise as to who won! 
Andrea, prairieknitter01, is the winner for the January Days of the Week Dishtowel challenge.  I love how Andrea set the designs in the corner of the dishtowels.  This helps them to hang so lovely.  Another beautiful touch is how she used different colored thread for each day, giving a rainbow effect to the week!  Beautiful work Andrea!  Thank you for participating this month. 

Andrea be contacting you shortly via email so I can send you your prize, a little crocheted dishcloth.  I know a few of you got started and weren't able to finish up the dishtowels before the month was up. No worries, things have to happen in there own natural time. Join us when you can. And please don't hesitate to tell me if you feel like we need to take more time on a project. I'm happy to accommodate!

Daisy kept sitting in front of the stove as I was taking this photo just begging to have her picture taken.  Isn't she cute!  As you can see my dishtowels are getting used already.  Hope yours are too!

How are the pillowcases coming?  Truth be told the sewing goddess has not come out yet.  No work has been done toward the pillowcases nor the Men's Shirt Sew Along.  The Men's Shirt Sew Along might have to wait until another month because I have a few too many other projects up my sleeve as well.

Be back tomorrow with a Tuesday's Treasure.


  1. Congrats!! I need to get going - it's already the middle of Feb! Gotta find the time.

  2. My Saturday towel is done, and the Sunday towel will be done tonight. I think they will all go faster after that. For one thing - Sunday has A LOT of lines in it! Also, I have decided to lighten up and start using bigger stitches.

    I have not started the pillowcase project yet. But I have been working on it in my mind! I have the cases set aside, and I have decided which pattern to use. I am not going to do the monogram or the other heart and flower pattern from the book, instead I am going to do the design that is on Alicia's site. I really agonized over the choice - I'll write up an explanation of my decision and put it on my blog when I'm all done.

    I am really glad to be part of this sew along. I am enjoying learning these techniques and I am not sure I would have taken the time without others to support me - thank you!

  3. Can you post the crochet dish cloth pattern? I like to crochet and always looking for something interesting-- most of the time I'm oh hum about crocheted stuff, but I like this stitch pattern. Thanks!


Your words touch my heart. Tread softly.
