Days Of The Week Rooster Towels

You may remember back I was blogging on my EzBoard that I started a set of "Days Of The Week" towels with roosters. These were from a vintage Vogart set of transfers that I purchased from a seller at Ebay. The transfer was complete and uncut and in fact, the package was still sealed and never opened!

Well, I completed the the towels last week and over weekend, made time to rinse, press and starch them.

These are a gift for Christmas so now they're ready to pack away for the next few months.

I'm currently working on a crinoline lady. When I complete the project, I'll post it.

Lovely towels Pam! I won't dare show them to the Dh, he's such a rooster nut, he'd have to have them, (never to use) but I have no place to put them.

Thanks so much for showing them though, I love them!

They are gorgeous Pam! I have two sets of old teatowel transfers (also via ebay) - one with kittens and the other is called "Colonial Girl and Puppy". I wish I had enough time to stitch them - I have transferred the kittens designs to materials, but not got around to stitching them.

Those are fun. Is that daily timetable what we women did before we got jobs and ran out of time and energy?!

Kay Susan, yes I think it is! But I'm not 100% sure. Don't have time to think about it! Ha, ha, ha!

Pam,

I'm pretty sure I have a set of these transfers somewhere. I inherited all my Nan's embroidery stuff when she passed and this has inspired me to pull them out and have a look what is there. I'm sure there are some chrinoline ladies!

One question, what stitch did you use for the days of the week?

Cheers,
Laren

Laren, the days of the week were already embroidered on the towels. I bought this set at KMart (in the US). They are from the Martha Stewart collection. I loved them because of the colored bands at the bottom!

I love this rooster pattern! The towels turned out great. I'm a little behind on blog reading, but catching up is so much fun when I stumble upon treasures like this. Great work!
