Applique Christmas Towel

So, as I mentioned yesterday, Hubby was sick this weekend so we didn't get to attend his Nannie's 85th birthday party OR his cousin Amy's Christmas party, as we had planned.  We really hated to miss it.  Amy had mentioned that at her party, we were to bring White Elephant/Dirty Santa gifts.  Y'all know that game, right?  Where everyone opens a gift one at a time and then you can trade depending on what number you draw?  Y'all know that game?  Anyway, lots of people bring silly gifts, like rolls of toilet paper or a Slinky, but I always want to bring something nice, maybe a nice candle or a cute mug with a Starbucks gift card.  I decided that I would make something this year.  This is what I decided on.

An applique Christmas tree towel.  Isn't it cute?  I got decent reviews for the DishWitchy Towel I made for Halloween, so why not a Christmas one, right?  Anyway, since the party was last weekend, I thought it would be plenty of time to display it for Christmas.  Too bad we missed the party, but I still love the towel.  Wouldn't they make great gifts for teachers or neighbors or just anybody who has a kitchen?  I always cook for teachers so this would be great along with their cookies and candy!  I gotta get busy making more.  Christmas is just around the corner. 

Okay, friends, gotta go get ready to see Michael Buble tonight.  WOO HOO!
