I Love Red

Finally I have some pictures to show for my stitching. I have been trying all week to get decent pictures taken and they were either too dark or blurry. Maybe I need a new camera or maybe it's the photographer.




First up we have a Star with a Heart in the middle. I stitched this with DMC CV4210. I can't seem to find the pattern to say where I got it from. It is a free one, if anyone really wants to know I will look for the site. Here's the site http://aurelle.over-blog.com/article-4775483.html
Thanks Anna.


I stitched up a little fob using Lizzie Kates Alphabet. I only stitched the background for the initial, assissi style. I was so engrossed in hand stitching the seams and getting the needle through the ribbon I didn't realize it was upside down, the little hearts should have been facing the other way.





This lovely design is from Debbie Draper . I stitched this using Carrie's Creation Ruby. I used the same for the fob.
This little birdie is from the Readers Digest Big Book of Cross Stitch Designs. I stitched it with DMC 817.

And lastly we have a Pelin Tezer free design. I left the border off and stitched it in DMC 304.
I do have another red one in the works, just a little more stitching and it will be done.
This week I think I will go back to stitching LHN Neighbord and LK Christmas flip its. If I just do these two I should get a fair amount done on both.

I love your finishes, and how they look so different, even though they are all 'red' - goes to show that stitching one colour doesn't have to be dull and uniform, doesn't it? :o)
