21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flower DOW towels for my Mother on: September 19, 2010 08:52:01 AM
Hello one and all, been a bit again since I've logged on to post any new projects.  A while back I had stitched up some chickens for my neighbor and during that project my mom expressed (I should say hinted) at wanting some of her own towels made by me.  So I got to work on them after I dug out the patterns from the depths of my computer, I wish I could post the site that I pulled them from but it has been ages ago and I just can't remember where they came from now.
Well, let's get onto the stitching.

I used stem stitch for almost the entire batch, adding a few french knots where needed.  Needless to say she loved them.  I suppose I should have held onto them for a holiday or something like that but they weren't ready for her birthday so I suppose they would be a very late birthday gift.  Oh, one other thing....
I LOVE variegated floss!

Better late than never, around 2 weeks ago I got started on this Cross stitch that I had been holding onto for a rainy day.  I finished a gift for my mother recently and decided it was time to bust this puppy out and get to work.  I'm making it for my son who will be turning 8.

and my most recent pic from this last week

I've not done a cross stitch this large before, usually I stick to standard embroidery but I find something soothing in cross stitch.

I have been out of blogging land for way too long, everyone has such wonderful projects to look at!   Wink

I stitched these up using patterns from the Hoop Love pool on Flicker.  My neighbors are way cool and She had recently re-done her kitchen, after seeing it and her theme I had to stitch these up for her.  Admittedly I only did 4 of the 6 patterns, We'll see about doing the last 2 later for her but I had to move onto another project for my dear mother.  She was eying these every time I brought them around as I was working on them and I could tell she was wondering "Where are my kitchen towels?"  So I'm stitching her up a set of 7 Day of the week towels with flowers on them... 

Ok, now onto the stitching.  I kept is simple, Stem stitch overall, Lazy Daisy for the flowers and leaves, back stitch for his cane, french knots for the flower centers and just a little satin stitch for the hearts popping out of their heads. 

Mr Rooster looks so snappy with his hat and cane.

I like how his tail feathers turned out, I tried to not over complicate them considering the simplicity of the overall patterns.

I just love how Mrs.Hen looks just a little snooty... her little beak all up in the air and her fluffy bottom looking all.. ruffly. 

I worked in just a teeny bit of satin stitch on the hearts.

And now holding... hands, wings, feathers? 

Her fluffy bum cracks me up.

I have not yet given them to my neighbor, we are going to BBQ all together and I thought I would give them to her then.  I hope she loves them and I hope you all like them too.
