Red Work & A Give Away!

I'm here! I'm here!
It's my day to show you what I've stitched
 with the marvelous patterns provided by

Both of my pillows were designs by
Debbie Martinez.
I took "creative liberty" and changed
 a few details from the original pattern. 


I pulled the red print from my stash.
And of course, I had to add polka dots.
Both, in the fabric and quilting.


Finished with little 
"Granny ruffles" on the backs.

I also stitched up these adorable kids
from Madame Samm. 

But just ran out of time!


To share my love of
 red work I'm having a Give Away!

A few of my favorite things.

 One yard Kona Cotton Snow
 Black Frixion Pen
 One Red #12 Perle Cotton
Nature's Beauty Red work book
Just leave a comment.
The winner will be picked
Saturday morning.

Let's keep hopping!



Thank You Jane and MadameSamm
 for all your hard work in organizing 
this hop!
