Hostess Gift


I went to a party on Saturday, and embroidered some linen to make a tea towel as a hostess gift. My friend who threw the party is in love with her house, so I took a photo of her house and rendered it in embroidery. I wrapped it around some cardboard and made a silk organza bow. She really likes it.

This is not the greatest photo, but if you click on it, you can see some detail of the stitches.
