I promise that I planned ahead for Mother's Day. For a few weeks, I had this idea that I would make some tea towels. I thought about putting tea cups on them, but then I got another idea. The thing is, just because you think about and plan something, doesn't mean it comes together.
Eventually, however, I came up with a design, which is based on our kitchen wallpaper. My mom loves this wallpaper so much, even though it shows signs of wear. Here's the Wild Olive take on it:
I set this up, and placed it on a panel to be printed by Spoonflower on their linen-cotton canvas, which I've heard is nice for tea towels. But wouldn't you know, I waited too long on my plan. There is a nice long backlog of printing, so the 10 days I allowed for will actually be a few weeks, and my mom will have to wait for her gift. I really don't blame Spoonflower...if I had actually made a decision and acted on it earlier, this would be fine.
In a similar story, I feel ridiculous, but I still haven't figured out a Mother's Day craft for the preschoolers at church this Sunday. Seriously, what's wrong with me?
