  1. I just picked up that book a couple of weeks ago and have already don't some stitching from it. Doesn't it just make you want to find an excuse to embroider something?

    Love that red fabric by the way.

  5. I LOVE flying geese and yours are so bright! Out of curiosity, do you know what that red fabric is? I have some and can't recall what it is, which is making it hard to reorder :)!

  7. Elaine - the red fabric is a Metro Living print by Robert Kaufman. You should have good luck finding it!

  10. That book looks fantastic, I really need a good embroidery book. Are those flying geese meant for a swoon block?

  12. I realize that the dark brown space between your geese is not intended to be viewed as part of the design, but it got my wheels spinning!
