Check Out Kathy's Beautiful Finish of Faux Grain Sack Dish Towels

We're expected to get two feet of snow starting tomorrow, and I went looking for something that I could do in case the power goes out. Check out these projects from the blog Dee Duncan writes at 
Vintage Country Style.  Thank you Kathy at Kittredge Mercantile  
for posting about her recent finish of faux grain sack dish towels.
They came out beautiful, Kathy! She listed the link for Dee's tutorials so I wanted to share with more of us bloggers.
The links are below. 
I have the deep blue paint and I found some very old feed sacks that have no printing left on them anymore, it's so faded it's almost invisible. I thought I'd use those to work on. Even if the power doesn't go out, it's looking like a great project to work on. I've got my sister's birthday coming up, and if the Izannah Walker doll doesn't work out, I need back up's!!
Thank you, Kathy and Dee:

Hi Susan :) We're getting high winds I believe are from that nor'easter.
Hey, I saw those towels that Kathy did and they look authentic. It's always good to have a back up plan :)

Susan, it is so good to see you back blogging, we've missed you! I saw Dee's tutorial on Facebook and then saw Kathy's towels that she made, they turned out so beautifully! Can't wait to see yours and hope you made it through the storm safe and sound.

I Look Forward To Your Comments
