My mother-in-law's kitchen has wallpaper with a lilac pattern, so for Christmas, I decided to make her a lilac towel set.

The embroidered towel took about 4 days of on and off stitching and is done in stem stitch, back stitch, colonial knot, and an open lazy daisy stitch. The pattern is vintage - mid-1940s (the transfer came with a Workbasket Magazine from that era).

The huck woven towel took about 45 minutes to do. The pattern is from the May 1954 issue of Workbasket Magazine.

Those are GORGEOUS!  I want one.  My favorite flowers are pansies and violets.
