I made this for my mother in law, it's Aunt Martha's Java Break pattern. It was my first time doing a tea towel and having to worry about the back of the work. I'm happy with how it turned out.

And here is the back of the work:


Thanks for looking! Smiley

That's very pretty and well done. The back is perfect.

Thanks everyone! I tried to start each new color/thread for each section so I had a lot to weave in later, but it paid off in the end. It was a test in patience. Cheesy

This is very pretty. I am a silent stalker here and not very good with expressing myself. I love the colours you chose also.
