Thrift store find and 1 towel finished

I found this fabric last week at the thrift store.  I thought it was really cool.  I'm not sure exactly what I'll do with it, but it would make something cute for the kitchen.  It's kind of a border print - I can't say as though I've ever seen any fabric quite like this - half of it is the yellow print, and the other is the cream print.

 And here's the original price tag - 4 yards for $1.00.  That was what they were charging at the thrift store as well.  :) 
 I followed the tutorial found here for the towel.  I like her fabric much better than mine!  I was in a hurry to get one done, so I did not embellish this one.  I will be appliquing trees on some of mine, and might go for some with yo-yo's as well.  I had a hard time finding charm packs of Christmas fabric in my local quilt shops.  I bought some fat quarters and half yard cuts, and combined them with some Christmas (and non-Christmas) fabric from my stash.

Well, I took a few days to think about the percale. So far, I got nothing. It is to bad you didn't get a mark down on the original price.
ha ha.

The vintage kitchen fabric is killing me. KILLING me I tell you. It is so fantastic. You found a winner.
