Safely Found And Homeward bound, At Last.

And so, the latest episode in this little Redwork story is finally finished. Nothing like a looming deadline such as Christmas to give you a little push, is there? This was very slow in the making due to my limited free time to stitch, (with even reading still on the long finger). But it has been finished, at last.


My very patient Mum finally gets a piece! And now that Christmas Day is past I can share it with you.


And as always, the minute I finish one I am keen to start the next. Hopefully it will be slightly quicker in the making than this one was. But I do believe I say that every time...


I still have no real idea where this little story is going or how I will present it in the end, especially as I keep giving away these little stitcheries. But there is something here, I believe. And I have no doubt I will know what it is when I am finished.

Oh Ciara, this latest one is something! And a perfect one to give your Mum, wher all the little chickens are home and safe! I love the sense in it of the boat trudging slowly through the water.

Every so often, I say I will start some stitchery (maybe redwork), but busy life just takes over, so I admire ANY work that you do, however slow.
Happy Christmas!

The good ship 'Redstitch' found a safe haven here over Christmas.

Beautiful work, Ciara. It seems to be very like your writing and photos: so expressive of your love of family.
