Over the past 3 or so years I’ve been embroidering tea towels for my mom—doling them out at Mother’s Day and birthdays as I managed to finish them.
Originally, my mom purchased the transfers for seven bluebird dishtowels with fruits and vegetables here (although I don’t see this transfer set on their website now). She planned to embroider them for herself, but I was pretty confident that wouldn’t happen anytime soon (she just retired two months ago), so I “stole” them and began working them for her myself. Of course, the secret was out as soon as I gifted her with the first towel, but it was a fun surprise!
It was great to get another project checked off my list, and even more fun to remember how much I enjoy embroidery. The French knots on the strawberries were my favorite part of this towel (Cowboy was even impressed).
