Just a Fun Stitchery

I completed my little fun stitchery with the Presencia thread. I am so in love with this thread. I even ordered more thread from Retta Carol Creations. I ordered two more collections: Crayon Box and Jewel Tones. Her collections come with matching floss. Cool.



Since I'm one who seldom follows the rules I've decided I'm going to make the next few Bobby Socks alphabet blocks in some different colors with my new thread. I can't imagine any grandchild of mine not liking a rainbow of colors. And when this Bobby Socks quilt is done in two years it will be a rainbow of colors.

I'm off to read the newest issue of Quilter's Home magazine. Barnes & Noble finally had it out on the rack and I can't wait to read it.

IVery cute, great job! I am going to check out this thread. I am not happy with I am using. I also have been using cheap floss that I have had for year and need some new ones.

I still have not been able to get the new copy of Quilter's Home. I have to wait until the end of the second month.

There's no rule that redwork must be red - I think a rainbow of color will be just right.

Great work. I'm gonna have to check out that thread.

the rainbow of colors you are going to use for the blocks sounds like a great idea. Seems like you really are enjoying Redwork (or any other color) stitcheries.

I love your embroideries,

I think the more colors the better!!!
I've been doing so much gardening that I haven't had a chance to visit my favorite blogs as much as I'd like, but this morning I'm making up for it!
