March OMG complete : embroidered dish towels, part 2

Hi everyone -- hope you and yours are safe and healthy.

I'm happy to report that I completed my March OMG to embroider the second dish towel. Here's where I was at the start of the month:


And here is the result -- along with the towel I stitched in February.


It's humbling and yet satisfying to see that I became a better embroiderer as the projects went on! It's obvious which one -- and even which part of which one -- was stitched first. Anyway, I think the recipient will be pleased with them, and I hope she actually uses them.

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 in their March projects on the Finish Party page! Or choose an OMG project of your own and join us in April. I still haven't decided what to pick up next, though it may be a sashiko project that I've been thinking about for a long time. We'll see!

  2. I am impressed Sunny, well done! These will make a lovely gift. :) I am still working on my goal, I had sewing machine problems for a week, and finally got that fixed on Friday, so I'm finally back on track. You guys are well and doing OK?

    1. Thanks Kathy! Glad to hear your sewing machine has been fixed -- I actually pulled my sewing machine out of the basement last night and added some edging strips to a big "Smokey Bear" panel that was in the stash -- something easy to dip my toe back into quilting.
