UPDATE: 7 BATHROOM HAND TOWELS NOW FINISHED:


This is the Oriental Lily design from right here on Cute embroidery under the FLOWERS section and then hit Lillies - sewn in the 5x7 hoop. Love Chris
1. Hot Pink on White
2. Dull Yellow/light Tans
3. Turquoise on White
4. Silver on Grey
5. White and Lemon on Grey
6. Aqua on Black towel
7. White, Silver and Yellow on Black towel.

Wanted to say that this design sewed out perfectly with not one problem on any of the towels. I had a couple of thread breakages but that sometimes happens.

I'm off to bed, it's nearly 11.00pm. We've got the girls again tonight and both are fast asleep. I've got them all day tomorrow and then Dana is having them sleep over tomorrow night. We've had them since yesterday and I'll have them again on Friday. School holidays!!!!!!!!! And I love it! Love Chris

Thanks I'm pleased with them. I've got a white and silver one just about to start on a black towel, but I've got to go and get Delphi from daycare. Love Chris

Each one is a beauty of their own. How lovely to see the different colors, just like in a real garden. Fantastic, Chris.

Ha ha ha, I think like you too Brenda, I have mine on display when visitors come. Especially white ones! Love Chris

In our house I would do the same. I have two males here and they both like working on cars so they would not do well here. Sure are pretty. Thanks

Oh gosh! They really are quite lovely. I love seeing what you are making for your Christmas luncheon. The ladies will be thrilled to receive these. Thanks for the link too. Would you like to share what kind of stabilizer you used?

2 comments
pennifold by pennifold 12 Apr 2018

Hi Penny, thanks for your comment. I used a medium weight tear away stabiliser. I don't hoop the towel, I place WSS (water soluble solvy - the mesh type) just inside the hoop and then I do a fix stitch (which is on my Husqvarna Designer SE) to keep it in place. Once washed the WSS just goes away. Love Chris

Thanks for the info! You sure got a fantastic result.

Your towels are great looking. It may be early in the year to work on you Christmas Luncheon, but better then having to rush later. Great work

With your update, I don't know which I like best. They are both elegant and cheerful too!
Thank you for adding the second towel here.

PS You could add the tags "Lily" "Lilies" "Lilly" "Lillies" "Floral" "Flowers" Flower" "Towel" "Towels" to allow for alternate spelling of Lily, single or plural searches, and helping folks find these beautiful towels. Again, excellent work on these towels!

Thanks, I'll do that. Being Australian, we have learned the English spelling of words. I always forget about the American spelling system. Love Chris

He he he! thanks Nan, this design sews out perfectly no thread breaks - the only thing is I didn't put my automatic thread cutter on so I had to cut the threads off. I'll remember it for next time. Love Chris

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 12 Apr 2018

Does your automatic thread cutter make knots on the back like my Babylock does?

pennifold by pennifold 12 Apr 2018

No, it doesn't make knots, that's a great feature! Love Chris

Beautiful!
I am glad you gave a nice example of how to find a design using the tags. And it gives the corresponding corner design as well.

Thanks Martine, I'm not sure what you mean by "the corresponding corner design", maybe just by doing part of the design you could make it into a corner. Love Chris
