Finish on Chicks Rule and my daughter is stitching!

While my daughter was visiting, she picked up an embroidery kit from Sublime Stitching. It is an old fashioned, iron on pattern company with a new look to it. Really cute patterns, updated to the looks of today, that you can make tea towels, pillowcases, etc.
She got the kit on Thursday and was really excited to get started. She stitched and stitched and finished her first tea towel. I am one proud Mama. She can crochet and knit, both of which I cannot do. But to take up stitching, whew! Just thrills me. Here is picture of her first piece:

And she inspired me to finish a new project. My intention this week was to do 2 verses on my Time for God. I did finish one of the two as I previously talked about in a post.
But getting the new purple fabric and the new Lizzie Kate "Chicks Rule" made me itch to stitch it. And stitch I did! I finished it tonight. And it is so cute. I just love it! Here is a picture of it:

I don't know what I am going to do with it. I might do a folded stand up like she has on the photo or I might do as a hanging flat fold. Have to find some cute fabric for it!
Don't forget to read my post before this for your chance to win a Lizzie Kate of your own!

Jenny's towel looks great. I love Chicks rule. It turned out wonderful. I also like the God one I have that to do I may start it Sunday. I have been talking to God a lot lately.
My blog has changed about 9 months ago it is theflyingitchesneedle.blogspot.com. The other one is not being used. So go and check it out. I miss you at the meeting. Love your blog glad you got the award you deserve it.
Take care my friend and I am glad you have been stitching again. I am impressed that Jenny can do all those other things I can't do either.
Love ya ~

Your daughter's towel is very pretty. She did a great job. Congrats to her for finishing her first embroidery piece. I just love Chicks Rule! The fabric is perfect for it. Congrats to you for the finish. It will look awesome as a flat fold.
