I'm in love with patchwork. It's such a great way to make use of awesome fabric -- one little bit at a time.
I gussied up a couple of plain ol' kitchen towels with the help of this easy tutorial -- thanks SupaFine!
One of these towels will be packaged with some Canadian maple syrup for Jeff's grandparents this Christmas. They love calling attention to the fact that he's living in Canada -- peppering their speech with ehs and abooots. So in good fun, we're gifting them something actually Canadian.
Ready for some close-ups...
