Towels everywhere

This past weekend I finally got that towel warp off the loom, I forgot to take pictures of the red ones, the last two towels I decided to use a variegated denim for the weft, just something different. The towels will be up for sale in my etsy shop...........as soon as they're washed and hemmed........

I moved on to embroidering towels Sunday afternoon.  These are the redwork ones done on the simple flour sack towels that have red twill stripes down each side.  I hadn't done the snowmen yet and they're so cute so I couldn't resist. Hopefully someone else will love them as much as I do. They'll all be up in the etsy shop for sale after I get them photographed. Here's one with a shovel.......

.....snowman with birdhouse and birds.......

.....then a snowman with a broom. I took this picture right after it came off the machine - you can see there are threads going from one area of stitching to another that still need to be clipped off. What you can't see is the tearaway stabilizer on the backside that needs to be removed - time consuming, good in front of the tv chore.

Then I moved on to a fun star design I've never stitched - it's so sweet - fun to use for the holidays but good for all year long.

This one is expanding the redwork theme to a rainbow of colors - fruits & veggies - I love it, going to embroider some of these for myself too.

And finally the chickens which I've embroidered many times and they sell fairly quickly. They are pretty darned cute. These are up for sale in the etsy shop in the 'embroidered towel' section of my shop as of this morning.


  1. Great towels! I love the variegated blue. The red work towels are really cute! :-)

    1. The red, green and sage green towels were bought before I even got them hemmed today - also a couple of the embroidered towels gone before listing them in the etsy shop - always a good thing.

  2. I love the embroidery! Looks great. I especially like the chickens. :)


I love your comments - thank you!
