Name That Tune

I was pretty tired after my summer company left and couldn't get up the ambition to get back to my quilting. Instead I decided to put my machine on automatic pilot and play with some of my embroidery designs. All the designs shown here today are from Embroidery Library.

I enjoy embroidering on dish towels. It's fairly inexpensive (if you don't think about the initial expense of an embroidery machine), I find it fun, and I think they make a nice quick gift.

If something goes wrong with the stitchout, the towel goes into my towel drawer instead of my gift box; and even with their warts they make me smile when I'm doing the dishes.

This set has had me humming for the last couple of days.


  1. We will all be extremely extra nice to you now, hoping you will want to give us a gift sometime. I smile just looking at them. Can't imagine if you were "touching" as well.

  2. All you have to do is Name That Tune!

  3. They are all gorgeous, Carol! I had to look it up-- looks like that line comes from a Simon & Garfunkel hit called "Scarborough Fair". At least according to Wikipedia. Now I'm wondering how the tune goes. Off to look it up again...

  4. You win Kathryn! One pretty dish towel is coming your way.

  5. Really- even though I cheated? thanks! ;)

  6. You are quick! Thanks Carol, that dish towel was my favorite one, too.

  7. You're certainly welcome -- glad it was a favorite!

  8. Are you going to Scarborough Fair
    Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme
    Remember me as the one who was therrrree.
    He once was a true love of mine.
    Now I can't quit humming.
