White Wednesday - Beautiful Tea Towel

Beautiful Embroidery on a Vintage Tea Towel.

The Fabric is a fine Linen.  
Finer Linen than you can find today!
Don't you love the way it irons up so nicely?

I love the Blue embroidery against the white Linen.

You can see the beautifully worked Padded Satin Stitch as well as Eyelets.

And Hemstitching was worked as part of the design.

If you look at the hem on the bottom, it is pinstitched  in place on the back of the towel.  The edge of the front of the towel is hemstitched with a touch of blue embroidery thread at the very outside edge.
Very Fancy!

You make me just breath deep when I visit your blog. It is like a breath of fresh air. Thank you for your prayers and your visit to my blog. I am still practicing my embroidery! Hopefully I can work on that little day gown soon. It takes me forever to do a project. lol

I love blue embroidery on white. It always reminds me of my grandmother's embroidery. It must have been her favorite, too! This little towel is beautiful!
