I do love decorated tea towels. They are so useful and pretty. When I was in Edmonton a few weeks ago, I checked out the new Anthropologie store at the West Edmonton Mall and got this lovely appliqued cakestand:
can you see the tatted trim is different on each of them (this is where I`d usually put a question mark, but something is wrong with the keyboard, and it turns into a É)
But, the best are these:

Aren't they great? You can visit her blog housewrenstudio. She does a lot with felted sweaters.
The thing is, I was thinking of these tea towels, and loving them, and something occurred to me. Why not try this sort of edge decoration thing on a larger scale, like a blanket, or a table-cloth.
My thrift-scout/personal shopper sister Gerry, found me these wonderful wool blankets.
They are such happy colors, and I have already started using the light orange one for some rug braiding strips. However, why not use one of the pink ones as a center and sew a strip of orange on the top and the bottom, and some other decorative strips and applique as well....... stay posted, I am so excited.
