Looking Nifty

A basket of finished towels! Not a bad site to behold. They still need one good washing before a hot iron and packaging of some sort. The jury is still out on which towel is the best. I’ll let consumers be the best judge.

Why did I choose these two colors? The blue and orange-yellow? It actually has to do with my grandmother. She was an artist who dabbled in many areas. One was copper enameling. Recently, I found some sweet 1 inch test squares she created (pictured below). I’ve had theses squares running around on my desktop and they were the inspiration to kick off this new project. I certainly didn’t match the blue and orange correctly, but it felt good enough for the first round.
