Little Tea Towels

Do you like to embroider? I'm been enjoying this little craft since I was a little girl. I know some of you probably do machine embroidery, but I just don't think I would get the same satisfaction as putting the hoop over the fabric and making every little stitch by hand.

I just recently finished a set of sweet little tea towels and thought I would share them with you! Aren't they cute?

As cute as they are, somehow the tea towels just didn't look finished! Oh woe is me! Alas! I have an idea! I'll put on a little edge trimming. So I dig through my fabrics and find a red and a green check.
Which one should I choose? Hummmmm....

I decided to go with the red checks and I love how this looks!

Isn't this so much better? Now these little kitchen tea towels will be proud to be hanging around in the kitchen, don't cha think?
Now I will leave you with a little Note Song~
Silver Threads and Golden Needles cannot mend this heart of mine
And I'll never drown my sorrow in the warm glow of your wine
You can't by my love with money for I never was that kind
Silver threads and golden needles cannot mend this heart of mine.
