Sunbonnet Redwork

Part of my summer was spent embroidering Sunbonnet Sue in redwork.  She's showing the things she does in each month of the year.

For example, here she is dressed for Halloween.

This is the third time I've done this pattern which came from the Sunbonnet Sue website.  I have another redwork project in mind for after supper work this winter.  I'll be showing it soon.  Redwork is my kind of embroidery; pick up the red floss, load up the needle, and go to work; no deciding what colors to use. lol

  This isn't quilted yet, but soon; it measures around 16 1/2" x 21 1/2".

  1. This is so beautiful. You are one talented lady. I've always wanted to learn how to do this but was coordinated enough. I can't wait to see the finished product. Hope you are having a beautiful Fall. It's gorgeous here and the leaves are really changing colors fast.. Hugs, Susie

  2. Love your embroidery quilt project. I love hand stitchery. And Red Work always catches my eye. Nice that each square represents a different month. :)

  7. Your redwork blocks are just lovely...perfect way to end the day...I cannot count my day complete 'til needle, thread and fabric meet. Something to do with my hands keeps me from falling asleep in my chair in the evenings.
