Loving Redwork!!

I gave a sneak peek of a new design I was working on a few posts back....a redwork Xmas stitchery. Now while red isnt my favorite colour, I found it quick and easy to work on and because I had so much fun with it, i designed another!! So here they are:

A cheeky little reindeer, sharing the spirit of Xmas and:

A fun little snowman, sure to warm the heart!! Patterns are all ready and off to the printers tomorrow, so they should be in the store next week. I predict more redwork in my future. Its a wonderful way to present Xmas designs!!

Lastly, Im not one to do book reviews but I have just finished reading this book:


Anne Ida and Leigh were discussing it at lunch (while we were in Melbourne) and it had me intrigued. It is a beautifully written story, set in wartime Afghanistan. Some of the scenes were quite haunting but it was powerful, thought provoking and a great read, if anyones looking for a new book to read!! Im off to buy his next one....A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Love the prairie points on the Reindeer. The xmas elves I am working on at the moment have them too and they look great. Maybe I'll be up to that stage by camp and you'll get to see it ;-)

Love your new redwork designs - a particular love of mine. The prairie points look great and I like the little bells. I am very envious of your lovely quilting around the snowman. Looks fantastic. Looking forward to seeing what you have for us next.
