I am so happy that you like them k8kre8s!  And I am sorry it took me so long to get them done-- I am slower at embroidery than I thought I was!  Ha!   Those patterns are so fun to work with though-- I love the little mixer.  I think that's one of my all time favorites too!  

One other thing-- the towels get very wrinkly, which was something I did not realize until after I started working with them.  But they are really soft and great to use for dishes-- so hopefully the wrinkles won't bother you too much!

you know what? my mom's treasured towels are all wrinky and soft too. i used to use them as headscarves when i had dreads. i even slept with them! so no, i don't care about wrinkles. the only thing i iron around here are seams i need to sew neatly  Cheesy
