I promised to post some pictures of stuff I´ve done... but haven´t been too active. Sorry! Here´s a picture of a blue rose (my badge) I embroidered on a linen towel. It was basically an experiment of how different stitches take wear and tear on items that get used and even washed a lot.

The rose is done with silk using mostly stem- and chainstitch. They have hold up fairly well, but the part that is done as laid work has not taken the washing well, you can see the linen through.

This looks lovely! I would have never guessed that it has been washed. Your embroidery is holding up very well.
Well done,
