I really thought this pattern would take one night of stitching but the lettering took much longer. Growing up in the south we would always catch lighting bugs. I miss that so much. We do not have them in the Pacific Northwest. This towel is going to be displayed in my kitchen to remind me to smile every day. The pattern is a new one from Aunt Martha.

It might have taken longer than expected, but well worth it.  What a happy design!

 This is so lovely my friend.  The stitching is sublime, the sentiment is great, and the color scheme is on point. Well done.   Kiss

That looks wonderful and the lettering is perfection. Metallic thread is so fussy to work with, you managed to get it just perfect. Beautifully done.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Time well spent; the lettering (and the sentiment) are wonderful!
