Where did July go?

Hello!  It seems like July just zipped by so quickly and I was side tracked with so many summery things.  

I have not got to be very crafty in July but I did go to a Harry Potter Marathon and got my very own Harry Potter 3-D glasses!! So I'm chalking July up as a success! 
Moving on to August! 
I have been working on several ideas for embroidery so I thought I would start out with a simple kitchen towel project. So with out further ado.  I used the light box and draw it on with pencil method.  I used a drawing from the book Rainbow of Stitches


So here I used the Stem Stitch to outline the blender and the mixer following the tutorial from Needle 'n Thread

So here is my final piece.  I really like how it turned out. 

And because I am always nosey and want to see here is the back of my piece.  I messed up a little on the first one I worked on so I am going to go back and tuck in the threads. 


  1. Yey! for Embroidery!
    Looks to tidy! I love to look at the back too! :) The mixer is so cute. I was wondering where you got the picture from. That was the book you showed us, right?
    I know what you mean about July going by in a whirl! Seems like it was just the 4th of July.

  2. Yes Heide it is the book I showed you. If you click on the title it should take you to the amazon link for it.
