A tea cup and a towel

It's blue Monday over at SmilingSally's. Actually the day's half gone here in North Carolina. I 've got to get busy and post!! There's the kitty graphic in her basket of blue flowers. Then I have a lovely bone china tea cup sitting on a cotton embroidered towel. My MIL gave me the tea cup. It's called Rosina and was made in England. Here's a photo of the trademark. All photos are clickable for closer viewing. The towel was in a group of mixed linen my sister found. The design is worked almost like huck weaving. It is beautiful on both sides. I touched it up with the iron and straighten part of the fringe with a dog comb (of all things!) . It brought back memories of Mom combing my naturally curly hair. OUCH! :) Go visit the Blue Monday blogs. There's something for everyone! Thank you, Sally for being our hostess. Here's my FIRST giveaway this week. Keep your eye out I'll be posting more. August is my birthday month and I wanted to GIVE this year. I am truly blessed! There are 2 panels of Sue Dreamer apparel art. Can be used as appliques on bags, quilts or other. Please tell me if you are entering in the drawing. There will be two (2) winners. The drawing ends Wednesday August 19. Just leave a comment on this post. :)

Wonderful pictures of a memorable time! Blue and white always look so crisp together! Have a happy birthday month, I will be watching for the giveaways, you can bet on it! BTW: I believe the technique on the towels is pattern darning. It is very much like huck except it has a pattern showing on the back that is reversed from the front. I have some red and white napkins that I am going to post on StitchMAP so you can compare.
I think Belle would be upset if I didn't at least try to win your Halloween fabric. So please enter my name.
