Sorry, I thought I had already reviewed. The towel was adorable. I gifted it to my Niece and she is elated to be able to take her beloved Murphy to college with her. The workmanship on the towel was beautiful, delivery was as promised. I will definitely purchase from this nice lady again.

Machine embroidered - tea towels, hooded baby towels, and fuzzy baby blankets.

I started my embroidery business soon after I left my career in human resources. I helped embroider logos on bags for the local hospice society. I instantly became hooked. I purchased my first embroidery machine that day. I started with embroidering designs on canvas bags, which I made. I sold them the following summer at the farmers' markets where I live. The following year I added tea towels. Each year I try to add some different items to my collection and delete some that are not working for me.

I was born in Southern California, but I moved 46 years ago, first to West then to Bozeman. Now I live and work in the wonderful and scenic town of Bozeman, Montana. The town boast’s a college (Montana State University) and three ski areas within 50 miles of the surrounding area – Bridger (the closest), Big Sky and Moonlight Basin (both are located near the smaller town of Big Sky above the beautiful Gallatin Canyon.)

    My first embroidery attempts were when I was a child. I left it behind as I grew up and didn't pick it up until leaving my job of 26 years. At that time, I returned to my passion - embroidering, only this time it was machine embroidery.
