These towels will be perfect!

Have not started yet but not having to look for colours in my stash and receiving all I need is comforting! Have never purchased a kit before and this one won't be the last. Am kinda new to Cotton Clouds and so appreciate the customer service and speed of delivery as well as a coupon for a 10% discount on next purchase! Love the website, beautiful colours and variety. They are also quick to respond to questions. Wonder which kit I am purchasing next?
