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.

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.
