Embroidered Tea Towel

Embroidered Tea Towel
It was fun to use needle and thread again, I hadn't done it in a while.
I used chain stitch. It's my favorite stitch to "draw" on fabric.
I got the pretty linen tea towel at Manos.

Hi, I randomly found your blog while looking for stamp carving instructions. I absolutely adore your style, it's so bright and fun, and your stamps have made me break out the carving set that's been in its packaging for 3 years.

It's been a joy to read back through all your beautiful work! Have added this blog to my Livejournal feeds so I can keep being inspired :D Thank you for sharing.

Exquisite! The linen, the bird, the stitching - it is just perfect. How was the eye done? Is it painted?

I haven't embroidered since Christmas, but you have given me the inspiration I need to get going again.

OH MY GOODNESS. Guess what? Ever since I've been reading your blog, I've been thinking "I need to email her and see if it would be cool if I could embroider some of her art!!!!!" But I've been shy. After seeing a birdie all embroidered up I know that they'd be so perfect for embroidery!! Creative collaboration?? I have a cool idea, if you're interested!!....

This inspires me to work on some needlework with my leather thimble and stork scissors. I have a pair of liontail scissors also.

Very Nice Ideas
