One towel, two towels three towels......

Were you read stories by Dr. Seuss when you were young?  I was not! It was mainly due to the fact that we were French Canadian and were not aware of the author.  As a matter of fact, I did not know of Theodor Seuss Geisel until we had moved to the states and by then I was ten years old.

How the Crinch Stole Christmas was my favourite Christmas special on television.  I enjoyed that time of the year for the many holiday programs they had.  Once many of my favourites became available on DVD, I jumped at the opportunity to collect them all. What memories!  I'm not even sure if they have "specials" anymore.  

As for Dr. Seuss, it wasn't until I had a child of my own that I learned that there were many other stories.  I now have many favourites but the Crinch as a special place in my heart.  As a youth, did you watch the Christmas Specials on television with your family?

You may be wondering how Dr. Seuss is connected to this blog entry... well .... as I was stitching these towels, I kept thinking of "one fish, two fish....."  lol


The Pattern is from Bird Brain Designs and is called "Freshly Picked"


Thank you for stopping by!  Cheers!

Love the tea towels and nice shades on the bands. I think everyone loved his stories, just fun to read when we were young and fun to read to our children.

They look great. When I saw your heading title I thought one towel, two towels, three towels, more........ lol I does have a flowing chant to it.
And yes, the Suess and holiday specials have a place in our hearts which also continue with the grandchildren. Jane

What pretty towels! For some reason I was never a big fan of the grinch -- I guess I didn't want anything grumpy in my Christmas stories LOL. But I do love Dr. Suess -- especially The Cat in the Hat. I loved that story when I was a kid -- seeing the big mess that Thing 1 and Thing 2 got into while he was gone -- what fun!

We had no TV at my home when I was a child. I am not a fan of the Crinch. What a negative comment *LOL*
