Donna G. from Berkley, California recently sent me photos of her version of Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif. I really like it when folks think "outside of the box" and make a design their own. Donna did just that. She told me that she was inspired by Sharon's red huswif which I showed you on January 23, 2011.
Donna stitched her huswif on 32-count Red linen from Zweigart with three different silk threads--Silk'n Colors (Shepherd's Moon 097), Caron Waterlilies (Honeysuckle), and Dinky Dyes (Cobar 113). Donna wrote that although her lining fabrics look pinkish in the photographs, they are really red.
