The right tea towel

 
I was going to use a towel with birds in it.  They were quite wonderful, but brown was the dominant color and I just couldn't get excited about it.  I was ready to give up when I walked by a gift shop a few days before Valentine's day and this jumped out and hollered at me, "Bella needs me!  Take me home!"  Of course, it came home with me.
While spending the day playing with fellow Rebels, I made yards of pink fabric.  I added narrow borders of fabric Bella selected, then added borders of my made pink fabric.
I have a couple of borders to add to make this big enough to please Bella.  She tells me her dolls have enough quilts right now, and she needs another big one.  As you might guess, her favorite color is pink and she thinks Valentine's day should be an every day holiday.  I will post another photo when it is finished.

Bella is going to be pleased with all this beautiful pinkness and that's a very pretty tea towel. Bella obviously has a good eye for a border.
