Do You Love Red???

Well as you know I do and I am really happy to have all of these...
All together in the one place...
I have decided to leave it just as it is....I like being able to see the process.
There are 13 little redwork hexies (and no I am not bothered about the 13) that are all little red treasures that I love e.g. little red birds, red letter box, red bicycle, cherries, red tulips, red roses, strawberry cupcakes, red spotty shoes and umbrella, red watering can, hearts, red ribbons on Miss Sophie and of course RED thread....a little close up.
So "Red Fancies" is finished. The pattern still needs to be written and made up but it will have to wait as I have some other Christmas sewing to get done. Hopefully after Christmas I will get it out there for you but I just had to share it with you now that it is done.
I thought I would say 'hooroo' with this ever so cute little birdie with it's red flower umbrella from "Let's Enjoy Beauty"
May all your weeds be wildflowers.
Blessings Michelle xxx
Footnote:
On a very sad note our wonderful and very talented Aussie designer Viv Robinson from Viv's Creations is very unwell you can read about it here. I have long been a huge fan of Viv's work and loved all her creations and designs. I am sending my love to her and her family at this very sad time xxx

  1. Red is the warmest of all colours. Red is Tuesday's colour. Red roses symbolize passionate love.
    Put some red in your life when you want to
    increased enthusiasm and more energy, gives you confidence to go after your dreams and red is also beleived to give you
    protection from fears and anxieties
