Showing my wings, maybe not?

Morning All,

As I was writing my title for this hop I found a big blunder.   But first these are the fabric 
scraps I picked out.  Love my scraps.

I haven't made any thing for my home for about three or four years.  While I was originally going to make a baby quilt with these appliques , but I had to switch to these kitchen hand towels because of shoulder pain.
It seem I may have torn my rotator cup,  I have been referred to an orthopedic surgeon on the 25th of this month. While I can't handle using the cutter and can use the scissors.  Enough of that.  

I'm cutting cost at home and we use way too many paper towels,  So I'm using white hand towels 
from when I closed my shop ( hair and tanning salon) for just drying hands in kitchen.  Hubby hasn't caught on to that part yet.  so  there are some stains.  The bright colors pull your eyes away from those and covers a few.

These are totally scrapy made and I have nine more to go at this time,  who knows for sure.  
The top one is almost finished  I have to embroider stilts legs and eyes.  
I will share as I finish them this summer

Oh yes the blunder out of all the birds only one had wings.  back  to the drawing board. 8-)

Thanks to Carol at For heading up this cute hop.
be sure to visit the participating ladies.

Blessing to all


  1. Good Morning! I hope your surgery goes well on your rotator cup. Just to have the pain stop and have some mobility back in your arm will be a relief, I'm sure. These are very cute hand towels, and I especially love the the adorable one with the black polka dotted boots. They have to make you smile! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. No blunder here! The birds didn't have to have actual wings on them, they just had to be something that has wings. All three of them are so dang cute, but the one with the boots stole my him! Your towels would make clean-ups a happy event. Thank you for sharing your sweet wings today!

  3. Hi Tonia! It is so nice to see your post today. I love the birds and all of the fabrics you chose for them. The hand towels are a great idea but these look too pretty to use. Best of luck with the shoulder. My husband had a large hole in his rotator cuff and he experienced immediate relief after his surgery.

  4. Terrific idea for reducing paper products while adding some cheerful colors to your kitchen. High five from one Kentucky sewer/ quilter to another!

  5. Prayers for your surgery. My sister just had hers done a week ago. Your towels are wonderful. And even though you didn't add wings, birds have wings, so I think they count. These are so bright and pretty. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. quilting dash lady at comcast dot net

  6. Oh Tonia, I'm so sorry to hear about your shoulder. Sending hugs and best wishes to you. Your birds are absolutely adorable. We all know that birds have wings, so these are perfect for the hop! And "perfectly" adorable. The are so bright and cheery. Just what we need this time of year. I think I can speak for most of us in the USA anyway. WE are done with winter. Time to look towards cheerful birdy time!

  7. Such bright and colourful birds and a great way to reuse the towels. Good luck with the surgeon.

  8. YayY for scrappy projects!! Sorry to hear about your rotator cuff injury. Not SEW much fun!!

  9. These are so cute. As a former cosmetologist myself I think rotator cuff injuries are common. Speedy recovery. For the love of geese

  10. I am so sorry to hear about your rotator cuff issues, Tonia. My hubby damaged his in a fall many years ago and required surgery. The physical therapy after was very helpful gaining back full usage of his arm. May you soon be on the mend and enjoying using your rotary cutter again. Your projects are colorful and work inspiring. Thank you for sharing in the hop ... <3 Pat

  11. I love that hummingbird, I hope you heal quickly!

  12. Great idea to make towels. Your projects are so colorful and fun. You can never have too many extra towels, right!! Thank you for sharing a sweet idea.

  13. Oh how adorable your sweet little birdies are. Love all your colour and happy fabric scraps. Fabulous idea to make towels. Hope that shoulder of yours gets better.

  14. Your appliqued towels are adorable. Hope you feel better soon

  15. Tonia, it is so nice to see your post today. I am really sorry to hear about your shoulder problems. I know that can be a real pain. Hope everything goes well with it and it heals quickly.
    Your birdie towels are so adorable. They will brighten up any space, but they are definitely too cute to use. Thank you for sharing today.
