Another pretty towel..........and a design to share with you!

 This embroidery design is so pretty that I just have to share the design with you!

I think it is a bird cage perhaps?  Anyhow, the flowers spilling 
out of it are just lovely!  
I embroidered the cage in black and chose burgundy and purple for the larger flowes
surrounded with gold yellow daisies.  I embroidered the leaves in two different colors of green and the vase I embroidered in a gray blue. 
Just using basic outline stitch, lazy daisy stitch for the leaves and French knots for the centers of the flowers. 
With this design , anyone can pick any color combination to make it stunning!

This is a vintage pattern 
I hope that you can click onto this design and will be able to save and print it 
off for your own stitching.  

I embroidered this on a dish towel and paired it with a hand crocheted dishcloth with a purple accent stripe.
So ..........if you decide to use this design........
happy stitching everyone!

I love your embroidery work. I was sitting here tonight thinking I should do some, as it's been a long time. I find it so relaxing. What a fun blog you have. I will have to visit your Etsy page.

Thank you for this lovely pattern Kathleen! I am sorely tempted to print it off and keep it for a rainy day, but I have so many 'rainy day'patterns already that will probably never see the light of day. Not in my lifetime anyway. So I will continue to admire your work from afar :-)
