One of the best things about blogging is getting to know so many wonderful people I normally wouldn’t have a chance to meet! Today I want to share something the wonderfully talented Rosemary of Roses Petite Maison gave me just because she knows I collect redwork and thought I would enjoy them.
She sent me two redwork pillowcovers! One that says “Good Morning” and the other says “Good Night”.
Here’s a close-up of the design. Beautiful in it’s simplicity isn’t it!
I love embroidery of all kinds but redwork, also known as Turkey Redwork, is my favorite!
I like the way redwork looks with toile, especially black toile which is what I have in my bedroom. Thanks so much Rosemary!
Also, I promised my daughter that I would show the paper mache polar bear that she made in art. So here’s…….Kellog. Isn’t he cute! He has such a sweet face!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
What a nice gift! I love Kellog…
Your daughter is so talented-good job!
Redwork is pretty. My mom made me a little gardening girl-I’ll have to share her one of these weeks.
How sweet! The pillowcases and Kellog:)
Oh, how I love redwork. I have a bunch of patterns that I got with the intentions of doing some of my own redwork. Then I couldn’t decide which one to do first! Love the polar bear, it’s adorable! Your daughter is so talented.

Love the pillow cases. You just don’t see this kind of wonderful craft much anymore. I remember my mom’s sets were ALL embroidered.
And you tell your daughter she is VERY talented. LOVE the polar bear. I can see why she wanted it shown…she should be very proud of her work! If I were the art teacher, it’s a definite A+ grade!!!!
My show and tell is posted now. Come by if you can find time. See you there! Happy Friday, happy show n tell day.
I’m thrilled to see that you are once more blogging….I enjoyed The Feathered Nest immensely….
The red and white pillow covers are beautiful…Red is a color I use often in decorating….
Kellog is cute as can be…talented daughter…the apple doesn’t fall from the tree, does it?????

What a wonderful embroidery
job. I wish I had the patients to still do this. I would put my dads name on hie work shirt when I was a kid. It was fun.

The pillowcovers are lovely – I have not heard of redwork before. You captured it perfectly with your statement “Beautiful in its simplicity”.
Kellog is adorable!

I LOVE redwork. It it something I am working on myself too. Not quite there yet, but I’m getting better. (but I tend to be a perfectionist).

I love Kellog! Please tell your dear daughter she did a wonderful job making him and is very talented like her mom!
Thank you for letting me know the name of that shrub, Beauty Berry. That is a good name for it. I am sure your tiny acorns are sweet. I do not know why these are so big, but in our back yard there are some even bigger.
Have a lovely weekend!
The redwork pillowcases are stunning!!
And Kellog is just cute!

The Red Work is beautiful! I have a couple pieces I done. The bear is cute! Your daughter done a good job! Take Care!!
I like the redwork, but I love the polar bear! She did a great job – no wonder she wants to go to the art school.

Ok now! Rosemary needs to be my friend too, I adore the pillow cases. I have wanted a set for about 20 years! I never found the pattern. They are so so wonderful!
Your daughter really did a great job on her bear!! Maybe she could make the red work. Just hoping! If anyone nows where I could get the pattern for the red work pillow case, I would love it so much.
