This is my third try at posting pics !!! So obviously I'm new to this...

the veggies are a pattern from Sublime Stitchery that I bought. The stitches are basic --back stitch, chain, split stitch.. the dots are french knots. The word I free-handed with a washable pen. The towels are "Food Network" brand flour sacks from Kohl's.I thought they were kind of pricey ($13 for 4) but after reading here about how cheapies fall apart/are hard to sew, I would rate these good.
Thanks for all comments --now I'll try for the 4th time to include my bad pics!!!

Veggies do rule, and so does this towel!  I've had no problems with the flour sack towels I bought from Walmart.  Although, they are wonky and the edges don't match up.   Nice Stitching, Good Job!

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