This is a treat for myself. The plain towels are vintage100% Italian linen, a present from my late Mother in 1978, left in a draw for so many years and now brought to life with my embroidery.

Thank you for looking.

What a lovely story as the precious gift from your mother and now you've finally got it out to embroider, use and you can think about getting this all these years ago. When we go through things it helps us think of our wonderful loving mothers. It is beautiful and so meaningful.

What beautiful Italian linen Roberta. I love their linen and everything Italian for that matter!!
I'm still studying their language daily, not that it helps that much. I really need to speak to someone everyday.
I love the Flamingoes and what a wonderful memory every time you use them you will think of your mother. Love Chris

These are very special towels, and I understand why you left them in the drawer. You have the perfect designs and thread choices to make the towels blossom! I'm sure you'll have them with you and think of your mother when you look at them. I'm not sure I'd actually use them really. They are more like a painting and a memory that you enjoy keeping.

What a great story, it just goes to show that we can keep something for ages before we get round to using. Stunning work which shows up beautifully on the coloured background

Very nice, Robertahilde - I see, you like my designs. :)
You put it together from two of my free designs, Flamingos and "Reiher", good idea.
Happy stitching again
