Red Finish

Here it is! Yes, another sewing mat, when I like something I usually roll with it.


As I mentioned, this one is also mine and is now happily sitting under my trusty old Janome ready for some action. The red heart sticker top left of the machine has been there for several years so the red mat feels right at home.



I don't think I've ever worked with red before but the reds just jumped out at me.

My next project will also be in reds. Our local art group hold an annual art exhibition and have included a textile section which requires 1/8th of the quilt to use blood red. Sorry, no reveal until after October.

I really must make some progress on our log cabin quilt this weekend and that won't happen if I stay here ... so bye for now.
