ART Quilties to share

I am doing a 2 quiltie mingle with 2 wonderful ART friends: Penny and Wanda. I wasn't really sure where I wanted to begin for the longest time. Then I found these 2 smallish embroidery patterns and "knew" I had found my starting point. :) I LOVE the look of Redwork and would someday like to make a redwork quilt. But for now, I have made a mini redwork (and bluework) quiltie. It is satisfying to be able to complete a project in a short time.

I did both embroidery pieces one night while on the couch "listening" to TV. I know you can relate to not "watching" TV, but "listening." Most ART friends I have are like me and unable to just sit and stare at the lighted box of mindless entertainment. It's just not enough for me.....my hands need to play too!! :::Smiles:::

I kept them simple and really like how they turned out. I like that some of the edges aren't perfect and a bit frayed. It gives them a story. Anywho, just sharing.
