I would say I have been busy embroidering but that would be a lie. My embroidery machine has been busy. I just load the designs and threads. I am reloading my mother's stash of towels to give away to family and friends. Watermelon always reminds me of my grandmother. Watermelon and cantaloupe I should say. I could eat the cantaloupe as fast as she would cut them up.
Just some dainty florals.
Monochromatic florals.
Leafy corners. I really like the satin stitch on these. Nice that it is just a couple color changes. I can do chores while this one stitches out.
More dainty flowers.
This one has a great vintage feel to it.

It isn't the towels that are excessive. You can never have too many towels. We are in the middle of another excessive heat warning. And it really does feel like 123 degrees outside. Best just to stay inside and avoid any activity at all.

  1. I LOVE your needle work. It's beautiful! It reminds me of my Grandbea's work. You make me want to pick up a needle again. Although my daughter has banned me from starting new projects until I finish the ones I have going. HAHAHA!
