New Tea Towel

My Finished Towel!

My group is finished with round 4 of our Tea Towel Tour at Craftster. My towel has a woodland theme. I did the little birdie in the center from a free pattern by Andrea Zuill "Badbird".

This squirrel is by timpani~jax. So sweet. The leaves are incredibly finely stitched with only one strand of embroidery floss:

Bunny by UrsulaDiamond. Happy bunny is holding a bouquet of little flowers stitched with the lazy daisy stitch:

Sewphie stitched me this lovely fawn. I love the shading details under the belly and the white fur under the chin:

Sewsew-a-gogo stitched up this active squirrel. Can you see how she combined thread colors to do the fur?

Finally, Nannetta stitched up this busy mouse gathering up the beautiful bounty from the forest floor:

Didn't I have talented swap partners? I love my towel so much! What a fun swap!

I hope this comes across the right way, but rather than commenting on the tea towel, my eye has been caught by the quilt in the background. More please!!
