Have you ever experimented with redwork embroidery? With Mother’s Day coming up, this might be the time. Check out Simple Pleasures in Redwork by Kathy Schmitz for some really charming, heirloom-quality, bird-themed designs that when combined with some simple sewing would make perfect Mom’s Day or any day presents (if, like me, there’s no way you’d finish my Mother’s Day).
Here’s a peek at some of the pretty patterns:
Bluebird Nest Shoulder Bag
In My Garden Drawer Sachet
Quill Bird Pillow
Blackbird Sings Wall Hanging
And that’s just a glimpse of a few of the ten patterns featured in Simple Pleasures in Redwork. To make life even more simple, the book also includes full-size patterns, so you won’t waste your time at the copier.
