Seeing Red (In a Good Way)

Because it's spring and the flowers are blooming, we are surrounded by lots of soft pastels. But sometimes you really just crave a a good, strong red. Maybe a traditional French redwork sampler, as in this "Sampler Saisons" by Anagram Diffusion.

Maybe just a big, red accent: "Town House Sampler" by Brenda Keyes of the Sampler Company.

Here's Glenna's start on this:

Or a big, satisfying needlepoint canvas for Independence Day, with lots of red, white and blue.

You can choose between Lizzie Kate's cross stitch Santa in his red-striped nightshirt.

Or needlepoint the same thing. (Pssst--cross stitchers: needlepoint is easy--we can get you started with something cute like this!)

There's the bright red inn on the "Inn at Fox River Mill" by Little House Needleworks.

Knit some red-sparked socks (we have lots of sock yarn in all colors, plus this book).

Stitch a little French style redwork design by JBW (or stitch one in blue! Or green!)

Or stitch a big colorful design with flashes of red. Give "Peace" a chance. (Ahem. We are red-faced.) By a Stitcher's Hands.

Check this space on Monday for details about Halloween in May!!!
