This was my first experience using waffle-weave towels, and I found it to be much easier than I had expected.  The designs are from an Aunt Martha's pattern.

Those are cute.  I might have to try the waffle weave ones.  I have always stayed away too.

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

I've used the waffle weave before for other towels-I don't use them too much but it is a nice change. Great job!

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

Inspiration without application is moot.

I too love your color choices.

I just bought some things from Martha. I am excited to get them and your towels just makes my wait time even worse! Wink

I have been away from embroidery for quite some time, but after seeing your towels, which would look so amazingly good in my coffee-inspired kitchen, I think I will have to dig out my floss and needles.  Where do you find Aunt Martha's patterns now a'days?  It has been a very long while... Thanks.

You can find Aunt Martha's patterns at Walmart, or any hobby store that has an embroidery section! If you're looking for a specific pattern, you may have to google it and buy it online.

You can probably find some pretty good coffee cup patterns on the web, though! Clip art makes good hand embroidery patterns, too - you can transfer them yourself by tracing them with a pencil or with a water-soluble transfer pen (though recently, I am more convinced that these aren't the best idea!)
