And a progress pic:

I picked a bright color palette, probably becasue it was so lovely and sunny here yesterday.


I've gotta volunteer now at the school library, but I'm making super fast progress!  I think I'll be mailing tomorrow...

Wow! This is so exciting! Thanks for posting such wonderful pic to flickr! Mary told me you all were really into it! Cool. Awesome. We will do another tour after this one, I promise! Thank you so much field-testers! Am I using too many exclamation marks? Oh well!  Tongue

All finished! 

I'm pleased with how neat I was able to keep the back.  I managed to weave in all the ends so there would  be no knots:

And my flickr photoset with comments: http://www.flickr.com/photos/iamsusie/sets/72157594586499255/
The flickr photoset isn't all that interesting   Undecided.. I just wanted to be thorough!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is absolutely adorable.  The material looks very durable yet easy to work with.

Beautiful stitching! This is really exciting, I hope I can get in on the next tour.

I love old vintage flour sack towels the best, but you can't find those anywhere.
The new flour sack towels are too big, but not by much. Some are VERY loose threadwise, so the stitching doesn't look right and they don't hold up at all. But the thing I dislike the most is that the edges are finished horribly! They aren't straight or anything.
A loop to hang is nice but not needed. Good absorbency is a must. It must flick well when my husband is being a stinker in the kitchen. This is very important.

And the tea-towel is sent!  I sent in a flat rate priority envelope, so by early next week, it should arrive at Tea-Towel Tourist #2.
