Smelly Towels....

I have had it with smelly towels that are brand new and smelly dish towels that are fresh from the dryer...I bought new towels to replace the ones I had because the older ones got a sour smell to them I just could not wash out no matter what I used and I used some of the best smelling laundry soap I could find...still after drying off one time they would get sour smelling to me.....soooooo annoying....last week while I was over at  Aunt Ruthie's Sugar Pie Farmhouse web site  Aunt Ruthie had posted how she was having the same problem and she shared the concoction for making up her own Laundry soap (powered) so I made up the list and hit Walmart for all my ingredients I whipped up a big batch last night then I proceded to collect all the dirty towels I could find and get to washing them up and see if this was indeed the solution to my stinky towel problem...I will be trying them out as I just pulled from the dryer some of the sweetest smelling towels ever...the test will be if they stay that way after they get wet one time...along with grated soap I used Kirks Castile soap and Arm and Hammer washing soda, Borax, and Arm and Hammer soda I don't see how they could possibly NOT smell fabulous...and to top it off I found the cutest little heart shaped scoop I think that will make all the difference...ha!

New Year...New Quilts...


Nonie's Quilt
This has been a very fun week I've been able to sew a lot I finished piecing 2 quilt tops one is a Table runner the other is a Quilt for Nonie's heard right I have not made a nice quilt for my house and as often as Kaitlyn is over it's a shame to not have a nice warm cozy homemade quilt to wrap up I decided to make one for my house so when the Grandbabies are over they can use it...both designs are the easy 9 patch...and I love the I started piecing a Valentine Chevron design quilt...I am loving pink lately so this was a perfect little charm pack I've had for sometime...pinks reds and white...I will of course post pictures when I'm done with far this New Year I have gotten to be with My sewing machine a LOT!
