I stitched my next tea towel and sent it out in the mail today headed for TX. I stitched the butterfly . The wings are crayon tinted, not satin stitched. That would have taken me 3 weeks to satin stitch those suckers and we only have 1 week to stitch on it before we have to send it off to the next person.

Here is the whole towel so you can get an idea of how big and why I stitched a butterfly. It was sort of turning into a nature/circle theme. The 2 other embroiderys were stitched by 2 other girls. This is GatsbyGirl's towel.

How pretty! I love seeing your tea towels - they look so fun!

I made a crayon holder for my son for Christmas - he found it and turned it into his miniature action figure storage holder - LOL. Guess it's working though (I should have NEVER left it in the table on my sewing room).

I'm with you! No fill in satin stitching for me! I also prefer not to stitch pin-ups,but they are so popular in the Tea Towel Tour, I always end up doing at least one every time.

(I think pin-ups are hard because of the skin tones, sleek lines, faces, and they are often licensed patterns I don't own...)

The butterfly is really pretty.

These are looking so pretty! I love using the colored crayons to fill in the background. I think it looks so neat.
