So I received my Stitch it Kit in the mail on Monday and while I practiced some stitches I was to impatient to just practice...so I dove right in and created a tea towel! I used the tea cup and caraffe pattern using split stitch and satin stitch (I think...the one to fill areas in anyway) I think it turned out ok for my first project even though my stitches are inconsistent in size and the pattern transferred slightly on an angle..but I am soooo addicted now and can't wait to create more stuff!!!! My next project will probably be the heart/dagger one one a tee shirt!!

Ok here's the pics...

Sorry for the poor quality of the pics maybe my next project should be learning how to use the digi cam!!

Thanks for looking  Grin

I think the tea towel looks great and I love your choice of colors!  One thing that is very fun about the Sublime Stitching patterns is that you get to see how different people "interpret" them.  The satin stitching gives your towel a really warm homey sort of look to it.  I've been too chicken to satin stitch that much on mine (I'll post pictures as soon as I get the ric rac sewed on).  Great job!

The colors are beautiful, and you did a great job on the embroidery, especially for not practicing!

The satin stitching makes it look almost painted at first glance, it adds a really nice different touch.  I'm no longer afraid of satin stitch after forcing myself to do a completely satin stitched piece, but I still hate it.  Wink

I LOVE your color choices! 

Your satin stitches are so even especially for your first go at it! It took me forever for that stitch to come out half way presentable. I had many failed attempts at satin stitch!

Ya, my mom is getting tea towels for mother's day!

Why is everyone so afraid of satin stitching? Huh

Thanks again for the positive feedback!

Hehe.  I think I was afraid of it because it seems so uneven, at least MINE is.  The edges are hard to keep straight, and then you get holes in the middle of it.  It also doesn't feel as secure as outlining stitches do. 

But I forced myself to stitch a black cat in all satin stitch.  Now I'm not so afraid of it anymore, but I still don't like doing it.  Smiley
