Redwork Stitching


I finished the stitching for my Birdbrain pattern called Celebrate the Seasons. I wouldn't have done these with the Sulky product that goes through the printer.....I'm loving that stuff.
Next will be to wash off the Sulky, maybe some tea dying and then framing. I have the prefect frame but it needs to be painted, so you know what that means....it could be a while before I get that done. I'm not saying because I'm slow but rather it's raining a lot now and I would wait for a nice day to do the painting.


Keep Well and Happy Stitching.

Lovely stitching! I love that product too. You don't have to worry about anything showing up but your stitches.

These are gorgeous. I've never used that Sulky but it sounds like a useful product!! They will look lovely in a painted frame.

Love it. Love the coloring and will love it even more if you tea dye it. I can't wait to see them all framed up. Great project.

Sweet, sweet, sweet, Wendy. Can't wait till you can paint your frame so we can see these are done and ready to hang. :-)

You know me - I love that Sulky Solvy. Makes my embroidery life so much easier.

Sweet stitchery!

They look great! I don't know what that Sulky product is, I traced mine with a red ultra fine point Pigma pen and put a piece of white cotton behing and stitched away. Nothing to wash out and the red lines don't show at all. I'll have to try this Sulky stuff and see what it's all about.

Those stitcheries are lovely. I have no idea what the Sulky product is though. I just trace designs with a thin permanant marker and stitch very carefully. Maybe I should look into your recommendation so I make no mistakes. Tea dying will look fantastic!

Four good seasonal redwork blocks. I would have trouble picking a favorite as I like them all.

Karen said...

Love them Wendy - I've got those done as well and have them mounted in an old window frame that's painted block. They hang in my kitchen. Can't wait to see how you finish yours up.

Hugs- Karen

Cute project! Love the Sulky product! However, one thing I learned, do not apply/stick it to the fabric if you are going to have the blocks sit around for a while! Ask me how I know?! Cheers!
