When Alicia started talking about a set of tea towels that she was designing, I was looking forward to buying the patterns and making the tea towels. And then, she decided to be super nice and she has offered them free of charge!
I liked each design very much, but Sunday's design puzzled me, as I didn't know what it was supposed to be. Alicia referred to it as a "cheese lady". A quick Google search revealed that a cheese lady is a piece of Polish pottery, so named because it is used for serving cheese (and sometimes pancakes.)
And even though I have never set my eyes on a cheese lady up until now, I really want one. Even though I do not collect pottery, even though I do not serve wedges or wheels of cheese, and even though I do not serve pancakes often. I just think they are so neat! For now I will have to enjoy Sunday's tea towel.
The towels are edged with fabric binding, which I thought was a lovely touch. The first picture shows three fabrics which I've bought so far. I still have to hunt down four more prints.
