Spice Girls Tea Towel time!
This one was especially challenging for me because I'm very bad at drawing people. But I really wanted to keep with the Spice Girls theme
Kitten Wrangler on the needlework swap mentioned
that embroidery is like "painting with a needle and thread" and I love that because like here, I started with just an ok sketch, and after layers of thread and stitches and tweaking the design as I stitched along, something nice comes out of it
Sorry I should stop talking
An here she is... for our very special T3 swap organizer Rectangel... Saffron...
I couldn't find the right color of saffron so I used every orange/yellow/red-ish colors I have. She holds the flower that saffron comes from, and every flower has three stigmas which is the saffron. Saffron is probably the world's most expensive spice by weight because it has to be hand picked at the right time and 150 flowers need to be picked for 1 gram of saffron.

(Please disregard the purple lines that haven't disappeared yet! And I have to say, lips are probably the hardest thing I have every attempted to stitch!)
And here's the entire tea towel...
I can't make it to the post office before it closes today, so I'll send it off tomorrow.
