Red Work Swap .....

I recently took part in a red work swap with a group of gals....

We were given 'secret' partners and had to make something that was at least 50% redwork - this is what I sent  to Lynda who has received it now.....

The mat is more the size of a tray cloth/ place mat - but of course it can be used for almost anything....

A bit of lime green border to give it a lift and pretty Warratah fabric around the border .....


lots of stitching in the design.... I found this picture on the internet over HERE .....


The "L" is from Michelle's latest stitchery alphabet.... and I love them so just made one to put inside - maybe Lynda can find something to do with it....


Righto, Gotto Go, other secret stuff to sew.....
