Description

Kathy and I met when we were freshmen in college.  Pledge sisters to the same sorority.  Then we shared an apartment for a while after college.  Had babies around the same time...etc.  She is very talented in the kitchen and is co-hostessing an annual lunch party I am attending tomorrow.

I wanted to bring her a small thank you  and she would expect it to be hand crafted.  I keep a supply of dish towels in my fabric stash to embroider up for nice gifts and this one in blue and white should go nice in her kitchen.  The kitchen utensil theme is perfect for her.  We can all use new dish towels now and then.

The design is Utensil collage from urban threads.  I ironed a very soft tricot interfacing on the back side of the stitched area to make the area smooth to the touch and to hide the back side of the stitching.

ohh that's really nice for a chef/hostess as gift - any ideas what you are going to get to eat?

It is all potluck. I think there is some effort by the 2 hostessing to coordinate things so we aren't all salads or desserts. I was first to RSVP and I offered a dessert. I made a Pear Crumble cake from and Australian cookbook I have.

To finish what I was saying... Kathy usually does some kind of amazing salad and appetizer, though when she has had it at her home, she cooks a lot of the food.

I hope I'm not the only dessert there. It may be very small portions if it is.

Laurel does can do amazing things with chocolate, so I hope she is doing one of her cakes.

I'll have to tell Kathy about this site. She is a sewist from way back. Her mom too. In fact, her mom worked at the store where I took lessons in free motion embroidery (back around 1977). It was sewing on those machines that inspired me to buy my Elna.
