Herb Placemats and Wheat Redwork Embroidery
I've been working on some placemats using some of my Spoonflower samples. They turned out to have lots of herbs in them so I call them my herb placemats. There's rosemary, garlic and some vegetables. I want to find a soft yellow batik style fabric to go around the edge. Hopefully I'll find something at the quilt show in a couple weeks.
I'm working on my second redwork towel and I drew a wheat pattern and am excited to finish it. I remembered to use colorfast floss on this one so I'll be able to use it in the kitchen.
This design is kind of an experiment. I designed a cat from one of my watercolor paintings and I'm using hand dyed floss so hopefully I will get a nice watercolor effect with neat shading. I like how it is turning out so far. If this one turns out I have two more I will stitch up for a set of three. Not sure how I will finish them yet.
