Winter Towels

Yet another project complete. These two towels aren't necessarily a set - since one is more Christmas and the other one is more winter, but they will make a great addition to my sisters house during the "cold" months. ;-)


The thing I love about these these flour sack/tea towels is that they are rather thin and dry pretty quickly - so they are great for repeated use. Oh yeah, and they are super cute when all done up! ;-)

I found the snowflake embroidery pattern HERE and used a color page found on Google Images for the gingerbread house.

Evertime I stitch something new, I'm looking to learn something new in the process. This time around I learned the heavy chain stitch and used it for the icing of the gingerbread house. I knew a thin line in that color wouldn't stand out enough, so the heavy chain worked well.

I didn't use any new techniques on the snowflakes - I think their simpleness makes them beautiful.

Now I have to think of what to do next.... Any ideas??
