We've already missed the Spring...

This simple and cute little Spring Chick Tea Towel came together quickly.
I used my favorite machine applique that looks hand-stitched, the blind hem stitch. This time using ecru thread, since so many of the elements are pastel.

I hand-stitched the eyes and the small bird's legs using 3 strands of orange floss - I just picked something that looked like it coordinated with the fabrics.

I have so many of these tea-towel applique kits in my stash, including at least half a dozen that are already fused onto towels.
I really need to get tough with myself and find a way to get these finished up and out of the sewing room.
