Stitching Warm-ups!

....just a peek! How I entertained myself this weekend!
I'm in a stitched sampler swap in the "pre" Silver Bella swaps.
I need to start working on mine.
I always tend to need to make
"warm-ups"!
I saw some tea-towels at Anthropologie a few weeks ago
that were sold in a set of three
for $40.
I got back in my car and drew them from memory.
The bottom one is based on one of those.
Did any of you see these?

Yes, I did and opted for the vintage ones. Was it one of these: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/category.jsp?popId=HOME&navAction=middle&navCount=25&isSortBy=true&pushId=HOME-KITCHEN&id=HOME-KITCHEN-DISHTOWELS

I picked up this Pier 1 pillow that I have been eyeing - with simple embroidery but still love it! http://www.pier1.com/Catalog/RugsPillowsWindows/RugsPillowsWindows/tabid/514/CategoryID/144/List/0/catpageindex/6/Level/a/ProductID/116/ProductName/Floral-Cotton-Pillow/Default.aspx
