Tea Towel Love (Part 1)

I love tea towels - I have many from my grandmother, including days of the week and many more that she embroidered when she was first married (she's almost 95 now). They have a special place in my heart. I did a tea towel swap a couple of years ago and it was so much fun - I also have a tea towel group on Flickr, so if you have some you'd like to share - feel free to post! Here are but a few from the Flickr Embroidery Pool - enjoy!

  1. I would love to sew up some tea towels but I don't know how to keep my work from being a jumbled up mess in the back. Is there a tutorial somewhere on how to make the back look neat?

  2. Beautiful selection of tea towels.
