i've always loved embroidery, and i love old heavy linen and old patched up cottons. i finally decide to put them together and do some flower drawing embroidery on the back of an old linen calendar towel.first, i practiced drawing a fig branch on paper. then i drew it on the dishtowel (clamped to a masonite drawing board) with a disappearing ink pen from the fabric store. it disappears in 12 to 24 hours, so you have to get cracking with the embroidery! then i put it in the hoop and stitched the drawing . it was really fun. i have more projects like it on the way.
