They all look terrific but that toothpaste print is killer!

What great fabrics! I, too, am digging that toothpaste print! I don't know why I never thought to make towels for my bathroom! I like the idea of adding linen to the back for extra weight. And, your selection of fancy trims are perfect for the fabrics you've used.

And, thinking about all of the people (and wildlife) who are being affected by the wildfires is breaking my heart! I hope that you're fortunate enough that the blaze doesn't reach you (a friend in Oregon has been watching the fires and evacuation orders close in- I'd be a nervous wreck!). I'm glad that you have crafting to keep you occupied!

Isn't it a hoot? I collect foreign toothpaste tubes and have them displayed in shadow boxes in one of the bathrooms, so when a friend saw this print she sent me a link! Came all the way from Japan and cost a pretty penny, but I had to have it!

Thank you! They are fun to make, but I admit all the doodling around with the trims means that they don't come together as quickly as I would like.

And thank you for your thoughts. We got got a couple days of light, steady rain here and snow higher up where the main fire is which has helped slow the fire and diminished the smoke quite a bit for us. And the path of the fire is such that is finally seems to have passed us. Of course, that doesn't mean all are safe. And all the critters... I suppose this fire had at least something to do with several houses in our "neighborhood" being hit hard by mice this summer.

Well, at least mice are easy to deal with, and it's definitely better than bears! And, glad some rain has made it your way. Maybe some moisture from a hurricane can make its way north for you... but probably not, the way our weather patterns go Sad  When does snow usually start to fly up your way?

I think we have our normal amount of bears, perhaps fewer deer as I haven't seen any in a few weeks. We are at just below 4000' and generally get our first snow in October some time. But we can see snow above 5000' starting this time of year, usually. Last year our first snow was mid-Sept! But it didn't stick around and I think even by Thanksgiving we didn't have any accumulation. We're west of the divide so get all our weather from the Pacific side of things!  Wink

"Normal" amount of bears- LOL! We had one in the neighborhood (mama with 2 cubs) a couple of years ago, and it was big news. I live in a city, but towards the edge, not far from a reservoir so we get occasional visitors- I've seen deer, foxes, hawks, and frequently of late, wild turkeys. We've had a moose on the loose in the area several years back (before I lived in this part of the city).

I have a question about your towels- what size are they?

I just saw a post that a mountain lion has been spotted in the area! It seems like this is the time of year they come around for a bit.  Shocked

They vary a little, but they are cut to about 25" x 15.5" with ~.5" seams. If the trims are dangly, that changes them a bit, of course.  Roll Eyes
