Show and Tell Friday- decorative dish towels

Show and Tell Friday is here again,
and I wanted to show you'all some of my favorite dish towels.
The colored ones I got as monthly kits and did the appliquing myself.
Hooray for simple projects (they may actually get done!)
I hang these on my oven door as a holiday decoration, not so much as something to wipe hands on! I have a few more, I am just showing some of my favorites today. The watermelon is for the month of August, the bunny for April.
Here is a closeup -
One of my favorites is the embroidered saying- "Well-behaved women rarely make history." One of my daughters made this towel and gave it to me as a special gift. I am one lucky mom, I'd say!
Head over to Kelli's blog There is No Place Like Home for more show and tell fun!

What great applique work. My mother in law was the queen of applique, doing wonderful quilts. I wish I had the ability and the patience to do what you do!...Kathy

I echo that...."Well behaved women...." You betcha. And I've been trying to make history with my antics all these years, to no avail tho. I'm just a unknown behind the computer screen. rofl

I love all the holiday themes. I like to switch out the towels for the holidays, too.
You did a great job.

That is my favorite quote! I bought a window applique for my vehicle, but still haven't put it on three years later. Even the most simple projects don't get finished in my house.

Thanks for sharing yours! I think they look great.
