I made three of these little Easter Fabric Postcards for my friends. I had wanted to try redwork embroidery with my Janome 11000. This was a perfect opportunity to experiment. The design is from Martha Pullen. I purchased it a number of years ago when I attended an embroidery conference. She was one of the guest presenters. I just love to listen to her speak. She suggested that we use # 30 thread. It is thicker than regular embroidery thread. I didn't have any so I just used my regular thread. I'm hoping to get to the fabric store next week and I'll purchase some of the thicker thread. I would like to do a complete quilt with redwork.
I plan to make one more postcard tomorrow and I plan to use a bright pink thread. I think it will work for an Easter card.
I'm finding it difficult to find to time to blog. Things are very busy here at home with DH's health issues and picking up my Grand Girls from school each day. I do try to read as many blogs as possible. I'm thinking it may be time to take a blog break and catch my breath.
