Sometimes I enjoy the mindless stitching redwork affords.  No color changes and by using Valdani perle cotton size 12 there's no need to separate threads. 

This pattern is by Jo Ann Mullaly.  Sadly, Jo Ann retired from the pattern business.  I'll miss seeing her at quilt market but know she's enjoying her retirement.

The background is an embossed cotton fabric from my friend Rhoni at Diamond Textiles.  I was apprehensive about using the embossed fabric but absolutely love the added texture it added. 

I'm tying up loose ends today in preparation for spring quilt market next week.
