Tea For Two and Some Double Trouble

The tea towel/flour sack kitchen towel set project has been started. I had forgotten how much I enjoy embroidering and how careful you must be with the hot iron transfers. I single pinned the transfer on. Lifting up just a tiny tiny bit to see how I was doing, I didn’t get the transfer back down in the exact right spot. By towel/day 7 I had the technique down pat.


Two completed while binge watching The Father Brown Mystery’s series on Netflix.


Wednesday is saying ‘oh my’ as I Β wasn’t the clearest with the transfer printing. You can see where I doubled up a bit. I think it will be ok since I had a similar problem on Monday.


Well I thought 6 season of Father Brown would see me through this project but I guess I was wrong. I am just starting Wednesday and am into the 6th season with 5 more episodes to go.

    These look great and don’t worry about the transfer not lining up after lifting it. Think of it as a 3D effect…lol. By the way, I LOVE the Father Brown Mysteries too. A great series to embroider or quilt by.

      I am glad you like the blues. I am going to use the same dress colors throughout the week and then for Sunday change it up – her Sunday best! I will be sending the set to my step mom for a birthday gift. She is partial to everything Dutch! I do hope she uses them too πŸ™‚
