Redwork Club

I can't believe time has gone by so quickly! this is Novembers meeting!!! Yikes, sorry ladies..... I had to post because some really wonderful stuff!!! here is Susan. she made this little wall hanging for a contest on a blog. she won!!! I think the machine is all filled in with french knots. click on the pic to make it bigger! she also embroidered these blocks.......

this is a cross stitch or crewel project

and a basket block!

behind her you can see next years project!

This is a pumpkin penny rug I finished.. lovely pic of me, don't you agree? LOL...... this is a little wall hanging pillow for November. or I should say it hangs on a door knob!

and this one, is my favorite quilt I have made in 2011. it's just the top so far. I am thinking I will add another border or two to make it big enough to fit my bed! I LOVE this quilt. the pattern is Just Ask.

this is Margie with her table runner.....

and a matching table topper......

and a couple of ornaments she finished........

and another table topper......

this is Marti and her twisted heart. didn't it turn out wonderful? She was the guinea pig for how I will teach the class. which is coming up! I love the technique!!!!!

Jancye made this heart block...

and Eleanor striped quilt.

thank you ladies for all of your support! and making Redwork club so fun!!!

When I was dating he would always intimidated my dates. now I know it was a good thing! LOL.... he loves his children with all his heart and loves his grands. he is a pretty easy going guy. but if he gets his dander up - watch out! he has a great sense of humor too. he is a good guy! I love you dad!!! Oh, did I say he was a good sport? He is a very good sport. we went to Joe's Crab Shack. and look what they do if it's your birthday!!!! sorry the pic is sideways. not sure how to fix that.

hope you had a great b-day Dad! we love ya!!!
