Tea Towel Swap
I've had a respite from the parade of tea towels I've been getting for a Craftster Swap. Here's the whole guitar motif I did for rectangel. Pattern is Sublime Stitching:
Sublime Stitching Lanterns for PinkyK:
And a vintage style kitty for doo_leroux. Pattern from Aunt Martha (available at Hobby Lobby, JoAnns and many craft retailers):
When I placed the kitty on doo_leroux's towel, it ended up that she was stealing a peek at the pinup motif done by another embroiderer. I think this is kind of cute:
I love embroidery so much because it is easy to do, but looks great all finished. The biggest decisions are making the right color choices for the various parts of the motifs. A good stash of embroidery floss in various colors helps a lot. I think we are going to do some simple embroidery lessons at my next Meetup.
