I was looking around in my sewing room for a particular piece of fabric and came across an unfinished project. I think I completed the embroidery about two years ago, at least.
My project came from this book
Shadow Redwork by Alex Anderson.
This book is full of fun projects.
I love redwork embroidery but this has something extra.
The picture below shows what is meant by shadow.
The "shadow" work is white says "True Love is the Joy of Life"
This is the back of the pillow I made with my embroidery.
I now have something to add to my limited Valentine decorations, actually this pillow will stick around long after Valentines Day.
If you look close you can see the shadow work.
I am off to spend a little time in my sewing room, who knows what I might find next.
