Christmas Eve Stitching & Sewing

I, in my infinite wisdom, decided that I didn't have enough to do before Christmas Day, and started a new project last night (a gift for a family member). I was up a couple hours past my bedtime working on this:

Design by Sublime Stitching
 I kinda (okay, totally) wish I were keeping this tea towel for myself. It's really cute! As you can see, I still have some work left to do (the starburst thingies), but I plan to finish this after dinner tonight.

AND--the "L" is almost done! As in, almost completely sewn! There is just a little bit left to do. Hooray!!


Okay, I've got to get back to work. Wish me luck getting everything done by (gulp!) tomorrow. And Happy Holidays, everyone!

Love your work! I never understood just how much of an art embroidery is until I started making Waldorf dolls. Just embroidering the eyes was a huge learning curve in the beginning, riddled with many curse words and jabbed fingers!

Amie@Itsystich--Oh my goodness, I actually jabbed my finger while I was making the tea towel! Ack!! lol
