And mostly, the answer was tea towels...
After I was introduced to the wonderful blog phenomenon and the patterns and ideas shared within, I made some softies and many, many onesies.
Martha, at Q is for Quilter, introduced the idea of using coloring books as embroidery patterns to me. Previously, I always depended on hot iron transfer designs, but after seeing Martha's wonderful projects, a new source of inspiration was opened up to me.
This weekend, I ventured into another area of design source - photographs!
My original plan was to try some landscapes, but I decided to try a 'portrait'. I will never have the artistic creativity to do portraits as wonderful as Jenny Hart, but I think it turned out to be a passing likeness.
But the test will be if anyone recognizes it!
