When my daughter ask me if I am up for a challenge, I give it my full attention. I love a challenge specially when it is about being creative. So she sends me a photo of some pots and a bunch of different variety of Cactus. But it's not real plant, it's actually a photo of some creative embroidery art on a piece of cloth. So I ask where she would like this art, she thought I could embroider something similar on a white tea towel. Of course hand embroidery is a new hobby that I started so I consulted with my MIL. She did some explaining and I decided I could do something similar. Although I can't show you the finish product because it is suppose to be a surprise for my daughter, which I had a hard time keeping, but I did. I will share the design as my daughter chose four of them for her towel.
Anyway, I have to honestly admit that this hand embroidery is so relaxing but so addicting. You can actually start to see how each item of the design gets finish. I completed the challenge within a couple of nights. Now I have to start being creative and start drawing some new design for six new kitchen towels that will be used as Christmas gifts.
