Redwork Course through Stitchmap

For info on Stitchmap please see the previous post or click on the Stitchmap button on my sidebar.

The Redwork Course starts with gathering of supplies and ends with some finished pattern weights and a bag to hold them.

Each stitch is described in detail with pictures and text (we covered 16 different stitches I think).

I learnt a few new stitches and relearned a few others (I was self taught through books and the internet).  You are taught to do the stitches like grandma would have.

Here is what I made during the course.

Pattern weights

Bag to hold the pattern weights.

All of the above designs were done during the course.  One of them was even redone as the first one had too many oopsies in it.  Like I said above I learnt a lot and had some fun doing it.

I would recommend stitchmap and this course to anyone interested in stitchery whether they are beginners or experts.

What wonderful work you did. You are good with these trees, too. I really like the birds on the bag, as well. Such cute designs, and close-ups show the work you did - love that seashell, too!
