More Embroidery

 Salt & Pepper Buddies! I made this as a "thank you" for a friend of mine:



We were invited to a summer wedding, so I wanted to make a more detailed towel that I could still finish within a week.


During this project, I discovered that I REALLY like using variegated embroidery floss. It made the project deadline easier since it was so interesting, and I like how it worked on the flowers.


Finally, this towel was for a small housewarming gift. I'm really happy with how classy the red turned out with the monogram.

Can I Share...
