more recent embroidery finishes

I got this cute half apron a while back at Hobby Lobby. I had a hard time deciding what to put on it, because a lot of it is covered in stripes. I needed something simple that wouldn’t look awful with the stripes. I was saving this for a lampshade, but what the hell, the transfers are good for several applications. I stuck with primary colors so as to not clash with the bright stripes.

I’ve been wanting to do a design entirely in red (a style which is called, amazingly enough, redwork). This is from the Sublime Stitching Craft Pad. I went with a slightly darker red than is normally used.

I really wish I was better at lazy daisies.

Cocktail cocktail napkins!
