I don't remember the last time I embroidered.  It's been many years at the very least.  But I dusted off my needlework skills to make this tea towel for PerfectlyBohemian in the Great British Bake Off Swap.  The pattern is mostly bits from the La Patisserie set by Kimberly Ouimmet.  I mixed and matched bits I liked together in Photoshop, then added a bunting from a piece of clipart I found free on a Google image search. 



A great big thank you to kittykill for her help and advice on this project, and to sheepBlue for feedback (and endless patience with me sending a million progress pics).

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Holy wow! Might as well GO BIG when coming back to a medium, eh? Your stitches are so wonderfully tidy.

Lol.  At one point I tried deciding what each one was from various bake off challenges, but there were just SO MANY little bits on the towel, I had to give up.

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