design wall? maybe...

Blogger has been having issues all morning so hopefully this will work out and photos will appear in this post...

I worked on my redwork all weekend. I have 3 of the 4 corner pieces done now and hope to get the center panel traced sometime this week. Oh crap, who am I kidding? There is no way I will get that center panel traced. Wednesday the son gets the last of his stitches out and none too soon. He is going crazy and actually said he is looking forward to going back to work..(away from his "old parents", inside joke)
Thursday I am supposed to be taking a class at a LQS. I say supposed to because I am not sure I will be ready. WHY? I signed up for the class the day they sent me a message. I, of course, didn't want to do the same pattern as the rest of the class (which was chickens!) so they said they had to talk to the instructor. She agreed I could do the star pattern. She said she would order the pattern. That was 1 1/2 weeks ago. I called Saturday to see if the pattern was by chance in so I could use the weekend to see what I needed to get together. "Oh, we just ordered it yesterday". WHAT!! Now I am a fairly easy going person. Really! I am! But I do like to read through a pattern a few times and I need time to get all the supplies together and pick out fabric and stuff. It's Monday and I still don't have the pattern, and the class is Thursday...morning...at 10am... We shall see what happens.

So here is the redwork piece...



And Sunday I convinced the better half to stop at a local Goodwill where I though maybe I would find some vintage sheets, but instead found this cute little pink bowl..



ack! don't say it...I know I don't like pink...it's not for me...so there..

Your redwork is looking really nice. Sorry about the pattern "issue". That doesn't seem fair that they waited so long to order it. *sigh*

I wish I had the patience for redwork! I love it. Just can't sit still that long!

The redwork is really pretty, like QuiltSwissy I just don't seem to be able to sit still long enough to do such wonderful hand work! Good luck for Thursday!

Beautiful redwork,Nancy. Sorry to hear about the pattern problem. That LQS is not very customer friendly, is it? Nice bowl.

I love your redwork! You mentioned in an earlier post that the pattern source was a magazine. Any idea which magazine, and what date? Thanks.
