Progress report...

I have some progress to share on one of my salad wips.  The tea towel:


All of the embroidery is complete {I think - I may add a motif at the other end of the towel}.  I am really pleased with the stitching and colors:


Here is a closer look at the stitches, I used two rows of back stitch in two different greens for the lettuce leaves, split stitch for the tomato bodies and back stitch for their accents and green tops.



Now onto the hem.  I have two fabrics that match my floss colors.  You can probably guess what I hope to do using these two fabrics...


If I can figure out how!


 It will make a nice finish.



Here is a list of the floss colors I used for this project:

How sweet! What kind of fabric did you make the tea towels from? Or were they already made? :)

big B said...

Johanna - Thanks! No this is not a towel yet! Just fabric - quilting weight 100% cotton in a medium weave. I am going to make this into a tea towel next.

I love the stitching. I have not thought of doing a double back stitch but love the definition it gives.
