I'm still enjoying exchanging tea towels monthly in the swap group I belong to. For August's swap I attempted my first work using black threads to stitch faces. The 20's vintage pattern added just a touch of red and yellow for color, but designed the pattern for the rest to be stitched using black. I was a little nervous about getting the facial features stitched without creating a harsh look, but was happy with the results. I sent this linen tea towel off to Florida for Vicki to enjoy. I do hope it will add a little old-fashioned romance to her tea table.
