Woot Woot! I Found One!

Ever since Ms.V posted the "calendar/tea towel" challenge...I've been sitting like a bump on a log, sucking my thumb and pouting. You see, I had the perfect...THE PERFECT calendar towel that I held on to for like FOREVER and only a few months ago in a mad fit of cleaning (which hardly EVER happens) - I decided I would never do anything with it - and I threw it away. I did not KNOW they were considered 'collectibles' - and it just goes to prove my theory for NOT throwing things away because as soon as I do, I'm gonna need it!
I've been checking online but couldn't find anything I liked...at least nothing I was willing to spend my "hardly" earned money on...haha. We have a little antique store next to our quilt shop...I've been visiting them more often (as well as the local thrift stores)....and finally...today...only hours ago...I found this!
So now I'm doing the happy dance! I know exactly what I want to do with this once I get fabrics picked to go along with it....but alas...there are 32 "must do" projects ahead of this one...okay, yes, I get dramatic - maybe there is only 30. But I'm back in the game!!!! Yippee!!!!!

What an awesome idea! I have been collecting these towels for a while and wanted to use them in a quilt but didn't have a plan. I am really enjoying going back and reading these posts.
