Description:

A mermaid might not need a tea towel but she makes a pretty good calendar pin up girl regardless...

You don't need to dry your dishes when you live 40,000 leagues under the sea, so this daughter of Neptune can find more fun things to do with her time. But calendars - well, the Mayans might have stopped at 2012 but the Atlantans go on forever (even if their calendars are very fluid, like this one)... and she does make a rather gorgeous pin up girl.

If, unlike a mermaid, you might actually want to dry something with this tea towel, I would recommend purchasing the design on linen-cotton (which will also give a lovely vibrant print - much brighter than cotton). There is a resized version to fit a linen-cotton fat quarter available here.

I've been asked to upload the FQ without the dates - and coordinates have been requested... so... I've been very busy! The collection, 'Ondine dream' is here

wren_le...

wren_leyland says: Great wave lines. I especially liked how you thought of how towels are folded, with the imagery in the lower middle. The calendar-wave section was so attractive, it would look good either way.

rhondadesigns says: This siren of the sea looks as though she may be plotting how best to use the months spread across the briny waves above her! Perhaps she has plans to lure unwary sailors into her net!
