When Life Gives You Lemon's Giveaway

Well finally a week later I have my giveaway ready. Man does it go with whith the "When Life Gives You Lemon's"  title. I had heck with this. First off I had drawn up the lemonade picture that I embroidered and I couldn't get the color's right I think I made four or five before I finally got it right. Then I had embroidered a towel and poked my finger and got blood all over it so that when went to pot. So here it is finally a week later but it's done and I hope you like it. I designed it all around the little print I drew up. Thank you for all your encouraging comment's that make my day's!!!



Ok so this little apron I made using a tea towel and fabric and some lemon's I added to the top using the wax paper and paint method. The little rosette is on a pin so it can be removed.


This is a little dish cloth I crocheted using a pattern that I found.


This dish towel I just crocheted an edge on and crocheted a flower and sewed on.


And finally last but not least the picture the whole them of this was based on. I just found a picture frame at dollar tree and painted it with yellow's and whites and glued on another rosette. And of course my hand embroided glass of lemonade picture.

This is all handmade remember, it's not perfect but that's what gives it it's character!

This is one of my fave projects you've done so far. I've shared the project with some of my co-workers yesterday - we are all learning to crochet, and your dish cloth has become an inspiration. THANKS!
