I have been embroidering a lot lately and these are a few of my most recent projects

so first up a towel for my grandma i am making her a set of towels to go with her kitchen for her 80th birthday.



next up my just finished patch work owl. to make him i used some random scraps i had around and embroidered him to a foresty fabric i bought and sew on interfacing for strength. i like how he turned out but i don't know what to do with it i am thinking  either a pouch or a brooch deal... i am not sure any opinions would be great!


Now on to the boat patch. i made this for my friend but i plan on doing more of a similar idea but nicer. i pretty much free handed this i just drew a basic outline of everything.


Last but not least the little leaf
this is about 2x3 and is on silk dupioni self lined and interfaced to keep the stitching secure. this is another one i don't know what to do with i am thinking a pin or as a necklace.. any opinions on fabric pendents? (in real life it is much more shiny and less textured and of a darker green)


thanks for looking and any suggestions!

I adore that mushroom! It's very nicely done. Same goes with your cursive stitching, I like it.

sheenathank you! the cursive was a pain since i was using my own handwriting and i don't have the most legible/ proper cursive. i liked how it turned out though and now that i look at it i added the extra bump on the 'n' in 'on' but not in 'sailin' oops... oh well
