My camera's out getting repaired and I'm fretting about not being able to take pictures. Everyone says the best blogs are all about pictures. I don't have any new ones to share!
Early summer time is a time of gardening, yard work, outdoor festivals and travel.
Needless to say, my quilting and stitching are not progressing quickly. I continue to progress on the cross stitch fingertip towel which I showed a few posts ago, and at the same time I completed a monogrammed tea towel from a Martha Stewart kit. Michael's had the kit on clearance so I grabbed it right up. I'm not super-experienced at embroidery, but this design only required a few of the easier embroidery stitches: stem stitch, french knot and backstitch.
Heh! No camera.....but I still have a scanner! Here's the monogram on the tea towel. Rather sweet, wouldn't you say? It was easy and a lot of fun to do. I found the bird design very finely detailed on the pattern and it was a little difficult to follow when stitching. Unless you compare it to the original, though, you really don't notice any difference.
