Redwork or Coral Red?

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?


  1. Oh, the redwork is gorgeous! What will you do with it? The cups? Any number you choose will do. They are so colorful! You continually amaze me with what you can do with your embroidery machine!


  2. I, too, have been taught that odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye and generally find it to be true, but if an even number looks good, go for it. You're the artist!

    Your four mugs look wonderful!

    Love your blog.

  3. The redwork is very pretty. I love the stark contrast & graphic nature of the red on white.

    The cups are great too. I have 4 grand daughters, had 4 children, & grew up in a family of 4 siblings, so even though the "rule is odd numbers", I think 4 is a fine number. It looks great!
