Hello, all! I've done some cross stitch in the past, but was never interested in embroidery until I found Jenny's site. I decided to post photos of my first project - it's a tea towel done using the Tattoo Your Towels patterns. It still needs to be washed and ironed, but I'm feeling really proud of it so I had to share. Plus, I've gotten a ton of inspiration and information from trolling this board, so I figured it was only fair.

Thanks for looking!
Jen

Full embroidery (a little dark but you get the gist):
