Here's what I put on sew~amy's towel:

Here's the whole towel:

I've got weird lighting going on this morning so I apologize for the washed out colors. I got the pattern from Needlecrafter. It's almost all stem stitch, with a little lazy daisy, back stitch, and french knots thrown in. I really loved stitching on this towel! The fabric is wonderful! Did you make it yourself Amy?

Oh! I just wanted to add that ~Glenda's and sew~amy's stitching is amazing! Both of your stitches are so tiny and perfect!

Those birds are so cute.  You did a wonderful job that towel is looking great so far.

That's so sweet and pretty, Lilivanilli!  That towel brings to mind Cinderella (a movie I've watched with my girls more times than I could count!) with the birds and mice sewing! Smiley

I've missed commenting on so many towels, but what an impressive array so far!  Once again, I wish I could see them all in person!  Everyone has really done so well blending their own creative style in with the themes of the towels they're stitching.

Thanks for all the helpful hints on the rayon floss!  I'll keep them in mind IF I ever work up the nerve to pull it out again! Cheesy

Lilyvanilli, that's beautiful! I chuckled because when I looked at it the second time, I realized that was the design I was going to stitch from Needlecrafter, but then changed my mind. I was afraid I wouldn't have time to complete it. I'm so glad you stitched it so that I could see it "in thread".

I, too, love what sew~amy's towel is made from. I asked her about it and she said she bought it at Target. I looked at my local Target a day or two ago but didn't see anything quite like it. They did have some cloth napkins that might have been similar fabric, but I didn't think to see what size they were - they might be plenty big.

Lillivanilli that's adorable!  I can't believe you did most of it in stem stitch!  I have alot of respect for people who make stem stitch look amazing because I stink at it! Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

Here's the latest on the colorful chicken and rooster tea towel: 

And the entire towel:

I used an image out of a Dover Coloring book.  It's one of the Chinese-inspired designs, with a rooster and a chicken standing along a brook of running water and different grasses.  I really like the way it turned out, but it was a bit of a larger project than I had originally intended!  The rooster's wings kept on getting more and more elaborate and I felt that the brook had to be filled in rather than a simple outline.  Overall, this was a lot of fun because I was able to use quite a few different stitches.

I agree with ThirdMargaret - the birds remind me of Cindarella.  Nice work Lilyvanilli.

sonjabegonia - love the colors for the rooster.  He is definitely strutting his stuff.
