    On the back of the towel, I use a tear away-wash away. On the front I use the thinnest wash away I can find. :D

    You're NOT being difficult. The brand I use is called "Wash Away Tear Away" and is from the Marathon Thread Co. (www.marathonthread.com). I use one layer on the towels which seems to do the job. Their thread is also nice.

    The wash away I've been using on the top is Solvy - Medium Weight. (I bought a whole big roll by mistake -- this stuff does NOT work well when making free standing lace!)

    The towels are just beautiful! I really need to use my embrodiery machine, I did at first when I first got it and loved it, but then got busy and haven't looked at it since. I vowed I would start on Christmas projects early in January and work thru Nobember!

    Thank you for the compliment :D

    That's a great idea of starting now for next Christmas -- think that we would get finished with all the stuff then??? :lol: :lol:

    That is my plan, everything I do in the sewing room or most things will be geared towards Christmas gifts for 2010

    I think maybe we could make a post to see each month how we are doing, what do you think
