embroidered tea towels
Tish hand-dyed the towels especially for me, and chose a squirrel and a matryoshka design to stitch. I really like the colors she used, as well as the patterns from Sublime Stitching. The towels are nice and soft and will be lovely for all those times when recipes call for something to be wrapped in a "clean cloth towel," as these are much too pretty to use to wipe things up with.
I especially appreciate that Tish worked on these over the busy holiday season. I've actually done a number of postcard exchanges with her before, and she's always a fun and reliable partner to get! I'm glad we did a 1:1 swap this time for the tea towels, as I'm going to get to enjoy these for a very long time.
