The Polka Dot Girls

These ladies have been living in my embroidery hoop for the past few days and I've finally released them. I hope they make you smile - I've actually giggled a couple of times. :-)

Stay tuned because they are many more to come - this is a pattern by Bronwyn Hayes/Red Brolly called "The Polka Dot Girls". According to the pattern I was suppose to use different floss colors but I decided that I wanted them to be just red (DMC #304).

I hope that you've been enjoying your needle and thread! As always I love it that you stop by to visit - please feel free to leave a comment.

In Friendship!

The saying on your embroidery really says it all. Bronwyn's stitcheries are so much fun and always make me smile. Which one of these ladies are you? I bet the one with her arms wide open ready for a really big hug.

Oh my, they are so cute all in red, too ! Great idea, Darlene, as usual. Are you going to make a stitchery quilt with them all?

Hugs & smiles to you !

I love those ladies! I'm still drooling over that stitchery magazine I bought a while back. I just love your work! I've been thinking of you all week and wondering what beautiful projects you've been up too! Yesterday it rained, I opened the front door to listen to the music while I studied! I hope you're getting some kool weather in your neck of the woods! I love your block! thanks for sharing! Keep well!

OK, what connection do YOU have? I haven't been able to find Bronwyn's patterns here in the US, and the "Tea for Two" is out of print.

HELP!

How adorable, Darlene! I'm in the midst of redwork myself. It is so relaxing--just needle in, needle out LOL!

I received old "country threads" magazines this week with some projects form Bronwyn. I was thinking of starting one of them. You were faster! The women are lovely. I am curious to see what you will make with them. Take care.
