    Default Last minute, easy gift!

    A friend & I had planned to get together for lunch today. She texted me yesterday to let me know she was bringing a gift. Oops. I hadn't planned on exchanging gifts, lol. Saw this on FB - a kitchen boa! $5 at dollar General for 4 dish cloths, about 1/2 yard of frash abric & voila! Not counting the trip to the store, literally took me 15 minutes.

    Thank you. I had seen this at a craft show last year and thought it was a neat idea.

    I could use that myself! I am always wiping my hands on my pants. I bet they would be good sellers at a craft show.

    I received one as a gift. It is wide and also keeps the top of your shirt free from grease splatters if you're frying, and long enough to pick up hot plates, or get something out of the oven as the towel ends are double thickness. I didn't t know what is was until she told me.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Sew much potential to dress that idea up more. You could embroider a recipe on it. You could put a pocket on it with a recipe card. You could put cooking utensils in the pocket....and gift it away.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.
