We are fortunate to have a wide choice of threads to use in our textile arts. I did this redwork in a cotton Mettler thread. When sewn out my daughter mentioned that is actually the new "fashion" colour of Coral red. It has a more matte finish that is also beautiful.
This redwork design was stitched with Isacord thread. Here is some close up detail. These designs are by Enigma Enbroidery at Oregon Patch Works.
I could not resist to sew out this mugs. I arranged the individual mugs in a row and fit it into my Jumbo hoop.
Do one always need an uneven number- or will 4 in a row do?
