RedWork Birthday Card


Happy Birthday Miss Frances (My Granddaughter) born in 2000! This is a pattern from  Jenny Elefantz  www.elefantz.com  It works up quickly using size 5 threads.  I always use a light weight interfacing for support in working red work. On the back I made a pocket for a card and $. Also made triangles by folding a square in half and sewing to the edge. Love this idea for hanging mini projects. I sewed the two pieces right sides together and turned out under the pocket. The seam was closed with iron on fusible web.
 
 
Miss Tazzie

 
Miss Cinder

Wonderful pets who get a long well. The other day Miss Cinder was resting along the treadmill and Miss Tazzie walks on top of her to get on the treadmill.  They use the treadmill more then us. A good place to see what is going on outside and they like to sleep on it!
