    I add embroidery to the corners of the borders of my quilts and sometimes to the plain blocks I put between pieced blocks.

    I also embroider kitchen towels for gifts.

    I do a lot of shirts and towels. Recently I did a set of potholders and aprons for a wedding gift. My friend always has quilt labels for me to do for her. I love the embroidery but now I am learning to make quilt tops and am having scary fun!

    Recently finished a flower basket block for a table cover. Then did nine Sunbonnet Sues for a wall hanging in redwork.
    Now working on fruits including the leaves. Not sure what this will be....but maybe I will make them into snowballs and try a lap quilt. Wish there were more places to obtain redwork patterns. My nose is a little out of joint because yesterday a woman friend mistook my hand embroidery for machine made. OUCH.
