Monday Rooster Finished

It only took me a total of six hours to finish this pattern. It looks much better pressed! I did try two different ways of doing the text. The top "Wash On" backstitched and the bottom "Monday" text was double running stitch. I will do the rest double running, as this looks better on both the front and back. You can see the shadow around the top text from all the thread on the back. The bottom text is much cleaner.

A very quick workup, and I think it would have been even quicker if I was able to just sit down and stitch, rather than have this as a travel/pickup piece. Only 6 more to go!! Pam, another entry for the Vintage Style Towel Challenge.
