Finds from the past

My Aunt sent me a box of things that she had or had been given from my grandmother and her relatives. I found 7 tea towels in there that had never been used. Each one has a little sunbonnet gal on there appliqued. They are adorable - We guess they were made about 1950 or so. So I am going to make some sort of quilt out of them. Right now they are in the stare at every day and look at a few more details stage.
I have some thirties prints that would look cute - but I don't know what I'll do yet - so I am just looking at them.
My dog - he chased a prairie dog and the mean thing bit him. So today we go get his stitches out. It has been a pathetic 2 weeks for the pup - he had to have one of those funnel things on so he wouldn't bother his stitches. He looks so dejected when he wears it. Plus he has to stay in the house to keep it clean. He is not a complete house dog....we have been taking him out a lot - but I think he misses the great outdoors.
Have a great day!

Wonderful find, although, I'm not a big Sunbonnet Sue fan. Don't know why, but I've never cared for her. And your poor pup. :( Those praire dogs are mean.

How lovely ! I'm sure the right project will come to mind. Poor pup - my cat had to wear one of those lampshades earlier in the year after cutting his leg badly. He loves going out and looked completely cheesed off at having to stay in for 10days.
