Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Did you make your Christmas cards this year? I sooo did not.... BUT, I did just finish a set of ten Christmas-y Thank You cards that I love to pieces and will be sharing very soon! Meanwhile, I wanted to share yet another craft I enjoy... embroidery. I made this set of seven flour sack towels for a girlfriend for Christmas....
I forgot to take a picture of these before I sent them off to her, so she was kind enough to take a few photos for me to share here. Did I mention she has skillz in the photography department? She does! That picture up there looks so good I can't even believe I made those! lol. :)
I used about four different colors of DMC floss to match her kitchen. On the few sets of towels I've done in the past (and the one I'm working on right now), I've always been very eclectic with my towels. Each one was different. If they were all cats, there'd be all different colored cats, no central theme. I love the way the small color palette pulled all of these together though. Here are a few close-ups:
If you enjoy embroidery and like this set, it's by Aunt Martha's Iron On Transfers, and it's called Mocha Madness, as the title of this post suggests.
Stay tuned for another post in the next day or two of those thank you cards I made. You won't be disappointed! I have them sitting here in their clear envies waiting to be mailed, and I just want to sit and stare at them. lol! I think I should start stamping more so the novelty of the finished work wears off a bit. ha ha. :)
