WASH DAY, CLEANING DAY, MENDING DAY

I was just looking at some very nice Days of the week towels here in the store and decided to post about them.  We have 3 sets now which is a goodly number.

Below see one of the original patterns used to make them: This is the only pattern we have at this time.
And following some of the actual towels we have: I have taken from the 3 sets to show examples of each type but we have the entire sets here for sale.

And from a different set here also:
This concludes my post on cleaning day towels. Hope you enjoyed going back to the days when ladies
embroderied during their small amount of leisure time.

Hi Lois, We must have been reading each other's blogs at the same time!
I love the hand embroidered towels. My first embroidery project ever was "Wash Day." I still have that towel. Should blog about it, yes? You have some beauties. Thanks for sharing. Pat
