Redwork

Hello, Dear Ones. Here's another prepost for you! Think of me while I'm away because I'm thinking of you! :)

Hello Dear Ones, today I thought I would show you more of my Redwork. I found these patterns in a book from the library in the late 1980s, traced them onto some pillow cases and went to town with my little needle and red thread. I use these on our bed during the summer months. Think they look rather nice with my

matelasse cover.




This is the one on the right that says Good Night (I know you can read). I just love the old fashioned look of the fairy and the letters.

This is the other with morning glories and a sweet little bird. Did I ever tell you how creative I was? ;)

Well, I'm getting a little bit sleepy now and may need to lie down a bit and take a nap! Let me just take off my wonderful Redwork pillows and turn down the covers. Here, I'll stack them up in the corner.

uh oh...Do you see who has gotten into my bed, already under the covers and is pretending to be asleep?! Chloe Dawn! What is Mommy going to do with you? Well, schooch over...


shhh...I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~




When at night I go to sleep

Fourteen angels watch do keep;

Two my head are guarding,

Two my feet are guiding;

Two are on my right hand,

Two are on my left hand,

Two who warmly cover

Two who o'er me hover,

Two to whom 'tis given

To guide my steps to heaven.

Sleeping softly, then it seems

Heaven enters in my dreams;

Angels hover round me,

Whisp'ring they have found me;

Two are sweetly singing,

Two are garlands bringing,

Strewing me with roses

As my soul reposes.

God will not forsake me

When dawn at last will wake me.
