EmmyEmbroideries

More red-threaded embroideries destined for quilt-dom. I've mentioned that I'm predictable, right? I offered to make a custom quilt similar to this one for a school auction. The winner provided the drawings (well, her daughter did) and chose the colors/style of this quilt. So light blue linen and red embroidery thread: we meet again. Mwah, ha haaaaaa.

I love tracing and embroidering children's artwork. With the multitude of big-headed stick figures I receive on a daily basis, I sometimes forget to appreciate the clean, simple line and form that the under 5 crew are capable of. Check out this sunflower:

Isn't that SO a sunflower? I love it.

And for the grandparental reader types: playing hide and seek with a 3-year old, for your amusement:

LOVE your redwork! I have the same huge pile of art that I can never keep track of - I hope you don't mind if I copy you!
