I've had these Aunt Martha patterns my Mom got from an auction sitting around forever, so I finally decided to embroider a few.

Scrubbing Penguin


Sewing Penguin


Baking Penguin


Happy Penguin

The entire center of the sunflower is done with french knots.  Now that I can finally make a decent french knot I can't stop! Grin

I stitched them on my last set of Martha Stewart towels tea towels.  Now I can start on something else, maybe mosaics......Thanks for looking!

Those are really sweet. I also like how you did them on the check towels.

Those are sooo adorable!  I love penguins, and these are just way too cute.  Good job on the stitching too, it looks so even!  Mine is always so lumpy.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
