Yesterday I posted the wonderful floss tag that I received from Jolene. I neglected to take a picture of the beautiful fabric on the back, so here it is. You may swipe it if you'd like Jolene.
I will see my mom today and I can't wait to show it to her. She'll probably try to take it from me even though she no longer can see to do needlework! LOL!
Here is another beauty I received from Jolene in the exchange.It will make a nice patriotic addition to our game/family room.
I just had to take some stitches the day it arrived. Here is my progress thus far. I just love those little sheep!
I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow on the ground and also on the car. I'll have to beebop it outside to clean it off as I need to use it today. Ugh! I dread going out in the cold but at least I am lucky enough to have a car to use right?
For all you quilters out there that love redwork, and I'm one of them, you should go and visit Alex Anderson's blog at http://alexandersonquilts.com/ . She is giving away her 12 Days of Redwork as a free download. I have really been itching to do another redwork quilt and this will do nicely.I was thinking about how great it would look to have small squares of different red fabrics bordering the redwork blocks and then border the entire quilt the same way, maybe using 2 rows of squares instead of one? Lot's of time to decide. I'll use DMC's 498 for the embroidery. It's my absolute favorite for redwork. I think Alex said on her Simply Quilts show once that it was her's too.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. It's so nice to be 'visited' by friends!
'til next time,
