Singing Sunflower Rooster Tea Towel

We are in October already! Totally forgot to blog about this finished kitchen towel. It is from a Stitcher's Revolution iron on transfer called Folksy Farm. How do you call your towels: kitchen towels, dish towels, tea towels? I'm curious :-).

I wasn't raised in a farm, but the area where we lived was rural. Some people kept farm animals: goats, chickens, horses, rabbits, pigs, etc. There were two dairy farms nearby. My parents kept chickens for a short time. Speckles was the name of my favorite hen. She didn't turn out to be a good mom... she ended up in my uncle's soup. Bittersweet memory.

This rooster's suggested colors (in the pattern) reminded me of my Speckles, didn't have to make any changes... love the red, black, and white combo. That cute mushroom is a needleminder (needle nanny). Hand sculpted and painted by the talented Cynthia Crane, I'll add a link at the end of this post. I love her work!

Sunflowers are beautiful, yellow/orange... happy colors. The music notes add a nice touch too.

Here is a little peek at the humble beginnings of this towel. I love in-progress-project pictures ;-)! 
A large area of the United States is being affected by Hurricane Matthew as I type. Hoping everyone stays safe!
Until next time!

  1. So pretty, and I love a singing hen! I've always called them dishtowels, but I use them more for drying my hands. :)

  2. I really like your project. Poor Speckles ! Our Neighbours have Chickens. Maybe I should make them something like this for Christmas as they give us Eggs.
