I've been embroidering using Jenny's patterns for about a year now, but here is my first post.  My son liked to carry around a tea towel for a blanky when he was a baby.  He outgrew it, but as he's watched embroider more, he requested a new one.  Then of course the girl decided she needed one too.  I got these what I think are larger napkins or hanky's at the second hand store and I let the kids choose their patterns and colors.  Here are the final products.

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