It's Back!!!

Oh wonderful stitching mojo is back. I was able to finish the stitching on second kitchen towel yesterday and today I was able to finish both of them. I sewed a piece of muslin almost exactly the same color as the terry cloth on the back of the stitching.

I have come to realize that I am a little OCD when it comes to hiding the back of my stitching. Part of the reason I wanted to do this was so that when the towels get washed the back of the stitching would not get caught on anything.  :) My DD is modeling the front of one of the towels.

I put a green ribbon on the top an bottom to give it a little more pizazz.

I was able to make more progress on the green blanket as well the last two days. During that time my most constant companion has been Gizmo. We were watching the show "Once upon a time" on I-Tunes this weekend. Good thing my DD and I have the same taste in shows.

My model for this picture is our cat Tigerlily.

One of the greens is a little brighter in the picture than in person but I think it is coming out well. I am going to continue to work on this one tonight and see where my inspiration takes me tomorrow.

Ta Ta for now,

Your stitched towel is beautiful. Your idea of using muslim to back our stitching is a great which I am going to copy.

I am looking forward to following your blog.
