Tea Towel Challenge 2014

I'm so excited that Sophie Junction will be hosting Tea Towel Challenge 2014! 

Join me for the Tea Towel Challenge 2014
Last year, as some of you may recall, there was a Tea Towel Challenge at 15 Minutes Play.  Such fun!  My Tea Towel Tess quilt was the result of that.  Sophie did a fantastic Cock-a-Doodle Tea Towel Quilt.

Now there will be another challenge beginning in January.  It didn't take long for me to click over to eBay and buy a couple of prospects.

In her post today, Sophie asked what we collect.  Well, I have several pieces of vintage Georges Briard.  And now, thanks to my recent eBay spree, I have a couple of vintage Georges Briard tea towels to choose from for this challenge.


And then of course there's Pyrex, another fave collection. 

As it happens, I also recently bought a fun Pyrex inspired tea towel from Etsy store Fresh Pastry Stand.  I'm not sure I can bear to cut into this one.  Not yet, anyway.

There's plenty of time for you to join in, too, and find yourself a tea towel that will spark your creativity.  Click the Tea Towel Challenge 2014 button above to see the details and general timetable.

I really love the pyrex one. I haven't seen that design in a while! The others are very nice, too, so I'm interested in seeing which one you pick and what you do with it.

Pretty tea towels do seem to fall into your lap, don't they?? I must admit the pyrex one is a beauty!!

I couldn't cut into the pyrex inspired tea towel either. That deserves a frame so it can stay pristine and admired.

Wow, those are fantastic! I love the colors and the drawings, it is what I would do if I could!

Oh, I love that Pyrex inspired towel! It is so spot on!

And your George Braird tea towels are going to be great inspiration for the tea towel challenge.

Lots of fun stuff going on at your house!
