Stitching Red Hot

Scarlet. Crimson. Vermillion. Cherry. Red is the new black. For me. In 2012.

I'm digging the simple pearle cotton back stitch on my evolution party cocktail napkins (slightly adapted from the wonderful Coyote Craft pattern found here) much better than the colored split stitch I'd been using. (Unfortunately, I lost the napkin that the birthday-hatted monkey was stitched on and I can't seem to find another matching napkin, but oh well.)

The erect man in the elf boots is kind of hot.

Surrounding myself in lots of red this year. I've decided that 2012 will be a red hot one. And I won't be stopped.

Received some fabulous red gifts recently.

Happy princess shoes from mami

The handmade resin necklace is by lulusmith from my foxy squeeze

Even stitching Darwin's Tree of Life in red feels right to me.

Cerise. Ruby. Claret. Rose. I want it all.
