February OMG complete : embroidered dish towel

Hi everyone. Clearly February is the shortest month! I set a goal to  choose a pattern, transfer it to the towel, and stitch one of them. Here's where I was at the beginning of the month:

In the end, I didn't use any of those cute transfer patterns -- none of them really worked as a border. But I found a couple of "retro" machine embroidery patterns that I adapted to this shape, transferred it to the towel using "tracing paper" (which is more like "washable carbon paper"), and pulled out a bunch of vintage floss I had found at a local thrift store (score!) and got to work.

A few weeks later, and:

As I said at the beginning of the month, no bonus points for guessing what next month's OMG will be.

The One Monthly Goal link-up is organized by Elm Street Quilts with the idea that we can just focus on one task and make progress. You can see how everyone did on their February projects on the February Finish Party page!
