redwork....

I love to do hand embroidery and usually have something going all the time....
Thursday was my monthly Redwork Club in old St Charles. We meet at Anne Hazelwood studio and usually have a program, treats and then show-n-tell.

This month our program was given by Miss Nancy. She did a wonderful program on Ruby Short McKim. There were also yummy treats brought by Pat.

Then we got to the show-n-tell..... There were only a couple this month, but boy they were fabulous...

Waunetha's redwork quilt. These are Ruby Short McKims Roly Poly Animals. She does absolutely stunning stitching..



And look at that red quilting in the border...



We have two Japanese women that come to our club... I am not sure why they in the US, there is a bit of a language barrier...

Original design, hand pieced, hand quilted... She said since our club was all about red and white, she felt she needed to make this...



Original design, made in one month.. and she just learned to crochet..



Great show-n-tell, huh?

Have you voted? You have until tonight...

I am off to see all 5 of my grandkids today.... hope I can get them to sit still to get a photo...
