Still stitching along

I want to take this time to thank all of you who stop by and leave a comment. It is so wonderful to hear from all of you and to see the common threads we share in the things we do.And I just love visiting your wonderful blogs! I especially love to hear about what you are working on! So please come back!
On the Belle, I added a charm,
and stitched her onto a tote/market bag. These are some things I am hoping to sell this summer at the market. I am not sure if anyone will be interested in such things....but I am having fun anyhow......and that is what it's about........right?

Also, I am still stitching on towels, which I think will be a good sale at the market.....or I hope they will be. How about you? Do you like to purchase bags or do you prefer more usable things like towels and linens? I would love to hear

Kathleen, your Southern Belle is very pretty. I think bags are such a big thing right now. They are great for so many things!
I have some dish towels that my granny stitched on and the girls love to use them for their "tea party" tablecloths.

Have a wonderful stitching day!

Love what you did with the Southern Belle. I would make both the bags and towels. Very "usable" items right now.
Do you sell on Etsy? or your blog. I like the bluebird towel. Yes, I could stitch it, but I have 26 quilts I am trying to finish this year. If I start one more project, I will commit myself, LOL

I am not much into totes/bags but would beautiful towels and linens of all kinds. Your embroidery is just amazing. I would like to use the pencils to do the coloring but don't know where to find them. Do you know if Michaels crafts carries them?

Thank you for sharing.

I think both tote bags and linens of all kinds would sell well. Your embroidery is just wonderful! I am thinking of doing a quilt of embroidered squares so I can work on the embroidery at a leisurely pace, and finish when I finish. Just getting back into embroidery.

Kathleen, The bag is so very lovely! I think you will do well with them! The towels are also great! It's nice to have practical yet pretty items!!

Hi Kathleen,
You've done a gorgeous job on your Southern Belle!
And I love the bluebird; I think Pam Kellogg did this one some time ago. I remember seeing it on her blog.
