Camping Time

The nice weather has arrived, so I have started to plan camping trips for the summer.  I started making a tea towel for our camper.  I know it is completely impractical being white and all, but what could be better than a campfire, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows on a stick at my little camper sink?  On this end of the towel I stitched a shiny lantern, a tent and moon, and a campfire with a percolator, steaming hot dog and toasty marshmallows on a stick.  They're all so happy!

On the other side (a future Monday report) will be a camper, a canoe with fish and fishing rod and another happy camp fire. 

I found this pattern (and the towel) at Sublime Stitching. There is a great selection of more modern patterns, most of them being iron on.   Although I do like several of their patterns, does anyone have another source of young/modern/fun patterns?  Please leave a note below to expand my search a bit.

Another favorite spot of mine for patterns is Polka & Bloom. Over the weekend I started one of their patterns, but didn’t get too far. Carina has beautiful patterns and has been a great source of inspiration for me.  I am just not ready to show you quite yet ;)

Happy stitching!  Please do leave a note if you have another source of fun patterns.
