I've got a lot of catching up to do! I'll just have to say that it all looks great, as usual. Those hedgies are adorable and I really like the sublime pattern. All so cute! I sent binah's towel off today. Now I get to wait again, which is ok because I have another swap to wrap up. This has been so fun, I just wish there were more hours in a day to stitch more!

Dona Leonor ~ super cute hedgehogs!

Here's what I stitched for cupcakeguru's fall themed towel~


Design adapted from this vintage transfer found at Hoop Love.

Here's a shot of the entire towel! It's looking beautiful!!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I FINALLY finished 1girl1boy1kitty2's towel. It's not that the design I chose is complicated, it's that when it rains it pours. Her theme was Bright and Cheery (or something close, truly I can't keep a thought in my head these days) so I found this guy among the wonderous Aunt Martha Patterns. I got to experiment with french knots, leaving some of them loose for texture and what I thought was a fun effect (I don't know if the picture shows it.) I also got to work quite a bit with lazy daisies and couching, something that took way longer than my usual chain stitch.   



sorry about the hoop marks...

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Amy, Sewsew, Ritapizza, Ginamonster!  Such adorable designs.  I love learning of all the new places to look for pictures to stitch!  (and I gotta buy that Sublime pattern... Smiley)

Here's what I finally finished for Dona Leonor's towel.  I did everything but the actual mushrooms free-hand...probably not my best idea! Roll Eyes  I do like the way her towel is coming together, though!  (please excuse the hoop marks!)



And close-ups:






Hope you like it, Dona Leonor!!  It was fun!

You're all so sweet... thanks for the compliments on the hedgies for ThirdMargaret !


ThirdMargaret.... I love my mushrooms ! You did great with the embroidering and everything you did free handed... those are the perfect shops to have... get a good craft book then stop for a great fruit tart from the bakery to nibble on while reading and before heading home ... grab some pretty aromatic flowers to compliment the experience !

Before I go:

amy. ... love the colors you use on that little girl, the stitching is great !

rita. .... how cute can that be ... a mommy birdie giving with her baby ... awww, cute !!!
           You did a great job on the embroidery, I saw the close up of the wing on your
           flickr ! Did you use variegated floss on the wings or did you do an alternate
           chain stitch ?

Gina. ... What a cute and happy hippo ! Great Job stitching it !


Note:
 I will be seding out ThirdMargaret's towel today !  Will send PM's later with the DC # !
I wanted to send it a tiny bit early but ....The post office was close yesterday, didn't know the PO's are close on Columbus Day  Embarrassed , ooops !
