Hand Embroidered Towel - Kittens

Among the most recent projects are a couple of kitchen towels I'm hand embroidering for a newlywed couple as a housewarming gift.
The 1st towel has a cute pair of kitties in love. This towel is already done. Working on the 2nd one soon, and will show pictures of the finished towels once they make it to their final destinations. Hopefully in a week or two I'll be able to send them away!
These pictures (above and below) show the very beginnings of this towel. I'm using Aunt Martha's no.9773 Love in Bloom* and Dunroven towels*.
Around here things are still very busy. I try to squeeze time here and there for my embroidery projects... you know, to keep sane. This is especially true when having to deal with fibromyalgia flares, like these past few days. At times it gets so bad that I don't even feel like stitching or doing anything for that matter... thankfully, feeling a bit better now!
The 2nd towel is the cute pair of puppies! Stay tuned for a peek!

Progress?

Very little. April flew by and I wasn't able to make significant progress on my wip's, but I knew that was going to happen and I'm ok with that. 
This month will be as busy as April if not more.... especially since we are approaching the end of our online/homeschool year and even though my dd is ahead on her work, this momma is behind with uploading her work. Until I catch up, my wip's progress will be super slow. As you see in the pictures, I'm still working on the Carnation and on the Spring Stitching Club english paper piecing project. I truly enjoy whatever little time I get to spend adding a few stitches here and there on these projects!
Need to squeeze time to keep working on some "hush hush" embroidery projects: redwork, owls, and on a belated housewarming gift that I just started. Maybe I give you a peek of it next time ;-). It's already posted on my IG... just in case you like to take a look. Enjoy the week ahead!
