Seeing Red


Red work became popular in the 1870's. The term came from the embroidery floss used know as Turkey Red. It was popular among common folk as the cotton fabric and floss was far less expensive than silk. The basic outline stitch is used. Easy and fun. And who says you have to use red. Try whatever color you like..............
