A lovely lone yard of red wool..
matched with a yard of cardinal fabric from Joann's...
Is just Dreamy...
I am still in learning mode about hand stitching in general,
but this piece of wool seemed to need larger, lazier stitches...
something not too formal and
perhaps even a little "twiggy" looking..
Even reversible maybe...
I used thread by Valdani
and they were just the right colors and weight
to just peek through that soft sea of red.
This stitching has kept my hands and mind busy
these past few weeks and
has made me love cardinals!!!
I love finishing items, especially when they are for Christmas don't you?
