My Tea Towel Weekend Project

I have become kind of obsessed with tea towels lately. I like the nostalgic feel of them, and the way they look hanging on a cute hook or over the oven bar. The weekend before last we had a spring storm blow in, it was one of those bummer snowy days because it is supposed to be warming up this time of year right??? Well not here, so in order to make myself feel better I decided to take the day and embroider a tea towel. A while ago I had made a pintrest board about my tea towel obsession so I looked to that for inspiration. http://pinterest.com/gettinghooked/hand-towel-obsessions/
So, I started with a drawing I found online and a few colored flosses.


I have this little coffee/tea station in my kitchen so I thought it would be super cute to have a coffee themed tea towel to hang near it. 



It took about 7 hours from start to finish. Not a quick project, but it sure was nice to bundle up on a cold spring day and create something beautiful.
Hope your spring is warmer than mine has been :)
