    Hi Everyone,
    I guess pretty much everyone knows I can't sew upstairs while babysitting my niece. So... I have been working on hand work when I can.

    I thought you girls might enjoy seeing what I have been making.

    Here is the set of hand embroidered redwork pillow cases. I have some wonderful handmade cutwork lace that I will edge it out with.

    The this will be a pillow when it is finished, a pattern by crabapple hill designs.

    Thank you! The original redwork patterns are from Lace Tales. They have wonderful embroidery patterns there. I altered it somewhat while doing the redwork.

    Excellent work...good to see someone that enjoys hand sewing. I have never been one for hand sewing ...even to hemming. Very neat work someone is going to be happy to receive these.

    LOL... OH NO .... These are mine. I like to keep my embroidered things I make.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I do love to sit and sew. So relaxing. You can't tell from the picture, but these cover the whole front of the pillowcase. I suppose that they should be shams, but I want to use that cutwork, so they are cases. :lol:
