Redwork & apple pie...

My prayer-partner-and-forever-friend Allie has just shared a beautiful Redwork Christmas pattern on her blog and that got me thinking about how wonderfully comforting and homely I find Redwork embellished items to be.

Here are some especially useful designs which I imagined being just right for displaying on Christmas gifts or included in the festive decorating of our homes.

First of all HERE is Allie's joyous free pattern, Oh Ho The Mistletoe...

THESE cute chooks by Shellie Wilson are definitely going to be added to my personal stitching list...

Love cross-stitch? THIS tree pattern from a French designer is gorgeous...

 What about a lovely Redwork heart? You could sew one of THESE monogram initials into the centre!
The heart pattern is HERE on Mary Corbet's wonderful site...

And don't forget that my nine Redwork blocks from The Vintage Kitchen are still available as free downloads HERE in my shop until December 31st...

It's very relaxing to stitch a Redwork embroidery, isn't it?!
Just one single colour.
Love it!

If you love Apple Pie but can't have a wheat or gluten crust, you may like to try the pie I made last weekend...

I've shared the full recipe over HERE on my Cooked Simply, With Love blog.
There's also a quick recipe for making Vanilla Coconut Cream (in case dairy is your nemesis).

Today Mr E are I have a little adventure ahead of us.
No idea how it will turn out, but it could be life changing.
And then again, it may all be a fizzle of nothing much at all.

Either way, it's not bad. Just different.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
