First Redwork Experiment

Thanks to a challenge over on Stitcher's Showcase, I've tried my first semi-traditional redwork piece.  Cute!  Click the photo for a closer look.

The pattern is one of the wonderful patterns from The Floss Box "Science" series.  The red thread is a one-off "detritus" silk floss from Hand Dyed Fibers on plain off-white muslin. Stitches used included stem stitch, back stitch, couching, lazy daisies, french knots, and tailed french knots.

Quick to stitch up and I love the little flowers.

And the buggies!

Happy Sunday everyone!
