I've been busy trying to finish these ladies and just when I thought I was done, my thread ran out. Madge in the bottom right corner is missing 2 squares of satin stitching in the border. How could that happen, I bought several skeins and since I love redwork I always have extra on hand. So out I go to Loving Stitch to pick up more DMC 498. I love all the samples they have in the store, it's so tempting to buy a cross stitch pattern or two. I was browsing around and found some hand dyed floss in a variegated red for $5.50, wow that's expensive thread but guess what I bought it. I looked at some vintage yellow linen that was on sale but I was very good and put it back since I knew I wouldn't get around to using it and it too was expensive even on sale.
These patterns are from Red Brolly by Bronwyn Hayes. There names are Libby (top left), Louise (top right), Cynthia (bottom left) Madge (bottom right), check out how Darlene is doing on hers.
