Thought I'd take a minute to share another embroidery project I finished recently. This is a set of three towels I made for a girlfriend for her birthday. She and her fiance have a cottage up north, so I opted for a wildlife theme. I love the way these turned out - especially the Canadian geese on the moose towel. I've switched from using three strands of DMC to two, and love the cleaner lines it gives me!
I have a couple more embroidery projects in mind as well as a few crocheting projects, and need to make a couple cards in the near future, too. OH! And I have some yummy recipes to share as well. Hopefully that means the blog will see a little more action in the coming weeks!
These were all made using Aunt Martha's Northwoods Lodge (#3999) pattern set.
My mother had serious issues with that moose (above).
Mom: "Why don't you give him an eye? He needs an eye."
Me: "Mom. It's an outline. There's no eye in the pattern."
Mom: "You can add things that aren't in the pattern you know."
Me: *sigh* "Yes, I know. But it wouldn't look right."
