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.

But if the time-locks broken, then everything is coming through, not just the Daleks, but the Skaro Degradations, the Horde of Travesties, the Nightmare Child, the Could-Have-Been king with his army of meanwhile and never-weres, the war turning to hell.  ~The Doctor

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

Wonderful stitching! Keep it up, you're a natural!

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.
