YAY another Christmas gift to cross off my list.  Pattern source hoop love on flickr.  Done with 2 strands of floss, tons of back stitch and satin stitch, some french knots, and the men's suit jacket is split stitch and his hair is either stem stitch or outline stitch-- I forget which one!  Note-- the stitched text make look crooked, but in real life it is not, I think I just placed the tea towels a bit wonky on my scanner.

Stitched up on Target brand napkins which are soooo nice, sized 20x20, they are so cute when you fold them up tea towel style like I did for this project.

Thanks for looking!

thank you all for the kind words, and yes, i fell in love with those cute little towels that came in the sublime stitching stitch it kit, but couldn't find them anywhere until i had an epiphany and realized that napkins would be the perfect size!

Bethie they are gorgeous- I love the guy with the moustache and the cross stitch on the writing- they definitely look vintage.
