After telling you all last week that my favorite color growing up was RED, I decided to do a post not only about red, but about what I've been up to lately!
I've been cross-stitching again!
I pulled out the flosses, aida cloth, magazines and books. I found all my old hoops and needles, and a number of unfinished works (finished 2 of them!!), and now I've started the redwork sampler you see here.
I started this red sampler while I was waiting for an order of floss and material to come in so that I could actually get started on a DIFFERENT sampler. I liked this one fine, but I can't wait to finish it so I can start the other!!! Am I strange?
In the picture above, you can see a number of things that I've made over the years. The smallest heart pillow, the plaid pillow, as well as the lacy pillow and crocheted roses! The embroidered rose scarf was made by my dear birthmother.
Red. Deep dark red. Not that bright red, but garnet red. Another favorite! I have so many colors that I'm partial to...do you? Or do you just favor one??
Be sure and have a look at the parties I love posted on my sidebar...I'll be joining with some of them this week to share this post.
