As I mentioned before, I received my package from 85%confusion today. I'm pretty crummy with photos, so if you would like to post better ones I certainly won't be offended. I must search the embroidery boards sometime and figure out how everyone gets such nice shots of stitch detailing.

Anyways, here goes!















All her tea towels are this really neat kind of towel that is smooth on the side the  stitches are on and more of a terry on the other side. I think I need to hunt down her supplier.  Grin

The stitches are just gorgeous (so tiny!) and her stitch choice is great. Her snail towel uses a bunch, especially- stem stitch, french knots, couching, fly stitch, lazy daisies, and split stitch were the ones I identified in a quick glance. Even the back looks lovely.

I just tried the soap out, and it's pretty wonderful, too. I think I'll have to try soap making for myself!

Thanks again, 85%confusion!

wow, everyone has done such a great job! I love them!

85%confusion- where did you get the pattern for the cute little snail? I've been wanting to stitch up my craft bag and that little guy is perfect!

85%confusion kicks ass. I had to peek at her flickr when she said she posted her partner's towels. I love the snail, and the monogram looks professional!

Also--smittenheart's fruits are just darling. Ya can't go wrong with fruit tea towels!

I'm glad your package arrived safe and sound! So glad you like it. Of course, I found the note that was supposed to be in the box on my desk this morning... Oh well! =)

I have a hard time getting good shots, mostly because I am a lousy digital photographer. 35mm - no prob. But I never think to buy film anymore... Sometimes I scan things, because I have a super high resolution scanner... Your pictures captured the color far better than mine did (mine are on my flickr).

I sent unscented soap, because I wasn't sure if you had a scent type you like, or if you were sensitive... I'm making a batch of lilac soap and a batch of grapefruit soap tomorrow or the next day.

Anyway - hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them for you!

La La Laurrenn, the snail pattern is from a 1940s embroidery transfer that came with an old Workbasket Magazine. It was part of a set - there was sew day, wash day, bake day, iron day, shop day, clean day, and Sunday. I chose sew day, because it was for a crafter. =)   I can't remember what issue it went with.

The towels were at Bed Bath & Beyond, in the section with bar glasses/wine glasses. A 3 pack was $7.99. They are called Bistro Towels. Well worth it for the quality of them! I was having a terrible time finding flour sack towels that weren't all wonky.

I totally didn't notice that she posted them in her Flickr. It's good I am so unobservant- I never would have been able to resist spoiling my surprise!  Cheesy I do really like how they are photographed in your Flickr- such a lovely layout.

That soap feels really nice against the skin. It's a real contrast from drugstore soaps.

Lol at forgetting the note. That sounds like something your swap partner might do.

I must say, the worst thing about getting such a wonderful package first is that I really get nervous about mine.

I have loved this swap..it has done several things for me-one,gotten me totally addicted to looking for and buying tea towels/flour sack towels..and two,made me fall in love with embroidery all over again..

this is only the 3rd project that I have done and I had so much fun..I wish there was  more time for me to have been more detailed and yummy with the towels I sent leeska..

thanks leeska for being a great partner..
