Sonja that little girl is adorable!!  I've always wondered what that pattern would look like if it was stitched up and it's even better than I'd imagined!!

Rectangel that is so amazing!!  The detail is incredible and... I'm speechless!  I'm just in awe!! Cheesy

Here's my addition to GatsbyGirl's pillow case:

The design is from a sticker. I added the french knot detail.

lilyvanilli, nice addition to gatsbygirl's pillowcase. the smile in your design is contagious -- i found myself grinning while i was looking at it! i can't wait to see the pillowcase once gatsbygirl has sewn it up -- i loved how the whole top turned out.

sonjabegonia, that girl is beautifully stitched -- i love all the details. i'm excited to see the towel in its entirety.

i'm so bummed to hear that antarticraft's towel is MIA. rectangel, i love the heart-n-dagger you stitched on a replacement towel -- i think the blanket stitch turned out to be a pretty alternative to backstitch, and the detail in the hilt is fabulous.

For randymacker07's vintage sewing themed towel~

Pattern found here on Hoop Love.
I used a lot of varigated floss throughout.
See she's stitching a fish!

Entire towel - OMG I love it so much!

I'm really behind on comments, so apologies for this monster comment!

sewphie - I love your tattoo! The satin stitch is incredible - it looks SO professional and clean!

IamSusie - I think your astrology woodcut is one of my favorites! I love the style and the way you used unique stitching to create a cool effect. And thanks for the heads' up about the patterns! I'll definitely be checking those out.

SewSew - I love your car! It's a great design, and I like the little details you added - and the colors are great, too.

Dona - your hedgehogs are adorable! I love the way they turned out - so bright and cute.

amyracinerose - I've been wanting to see some of those designs stitched up, and yours is adorable! I love the colors your chose.

ritapizza
- Your bird family is so cute! It fits the towel really well, and I like the effect you got with your leaves.

ThirdMargaret - What a cute idea - mushroom shops! They're adorable. Great colors, too. I want to go a tiny mushroom bookshop! Smiley

Nannetta - Your addition to the towel is so cool - I'm really enjoying seeing some of these more traditional/historical embroidery designs. You did a wonderful job - it looks really even and clean, like something on a Victorian tablecloth!

sonjabegonia - WOW! I love your little Chinese girl! The details are wonderful.

LillyVanilli
- Your moon fits that towel perfectly! It's a really cool design, and the French knots add a lot to it. Very nice!

ritapizza - WOW! I love your kitten! The spool looks great (ditto to rectangel's comment) and I love your use of the variegated thread - I'm going to have to check that out.

Okay, a separate comment for my response to rectangel - first, OH, NO! Another lost towel?!? I must be cursed! I really, really hope it turns up - I love my mammoth and sexy librarian! Losing them would break my heart!

But honestly, seeing your amazing work, and just how thoughtful you are to send out another towel for me, and how amazing everyone is to stitch it again, really helps to take some of the sting away. Thank you so, so much. I really appreciate it, everyone!

The tattoo heart looks simply amazing. I really like the blanket stitch effect, and the dagger hilt is gorgeous!
