I used a pattern from Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray to test out some linen embroidery floss for a review I did for a craft site.



I love the stitching in this lovely book!
Here is my completed linen towel.  I liked working with the linen embroidery floss from DMC, but they have a limited set of colors. It frays a bit, so be gentle with linen floss and don't run your needle up and down it too much.  If you have to do any "unstitching" you won't be able to reuse that length of floss because it will break and fray.

I actually really like that. Its very 60s hippy motif, in my opinion.

Thanks!  I think linen floss is much easier to use than the glossy rayon satin floss by DMC.

I really like this project -- the design and colors are great! 

I haven't tried linen floss yet . . . will add that to my LONG list of things to try.

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

So cute! I LOVE her book. I got it for Christmas when I was just getting started with embroidery, and it helped me to start thinking of my own ideas and designs. I want to do a wall hanging/quilt like she has in the book. Nice work!
