I was itching for a little stitching this week.  Wanted to work on something Christmassy.  I am still trying to finish the afghan for our grandson's birthday next week.  Almost there.  I also have some sewing projects to finish for gifts.  They are not to involved and I think I will get them done...I think I will.  I collected these patterns from SewHappyMe Christmas SAL a few weeks ago.  There was one pattern each week for seven weeks and they have been burning a hole in my pocket.  Each one was only available for a week and I was so careful to collect them and I want to work on them.  They all go together into a banner, I may get it done and hung on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve...

I have started transferring the patterns, I used a red micro pen that a local quilt shop suggested.  I am going to use only red floss and that makes the embroidery piece Redwork.

This is the first time I have used only red thread I am loving the look.
Can you see where I have already stitched?

It is E week over at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.  I am late linking up but am still hoping to share and check out the other links.  E is for Embroidery.

Happy Friday and Blessings!

I wish I had the patience to embroider, because it is such a wonderful art form. Sadly, I do not. I saw an embroidered piece yesterday at a client's home that actually looked like a fine painting. Brava to you!!!

I love doing those stitcheries, esp. when they are all one easy!
I have a few projects to work on myself, but these darn blogs and pinterest are so entertaining!!

I LOVE REDWORK! I think that is a great idea to do them in redwork. Hmmm....maybe next year.

Oh, embroidery! I wish I had the time and patience to pick it up again :) These days I need to make things that require little time to work on or I'd lose interest in it! Your embroidery looks like its coming out nicely though. Hope you'll share the finished project!

I've tried embroidery. Tried and tried and get about three stitches done and lose interest!

Yours are so pretty, though.

I admire your patience in doing these!

Thanks for a lovely link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "E".
