My new etsy shop RedworkInGermany.etsy.com

RedworkInGermany.etsy.com

A little over a year ago I got my etsy account as I wanted to open my own etsy shop and just didn't find the time or - more truthfully - the courage to set it up.

But then, this year was the second time I offered my Redwork on a local craft fair and the positive feedback on my work was so encouraging I finally "opened" my shop, albeit very small...


Schokoladenmädchen Pattern Kit
La Belle Chocolatiere - Redwork embroidery kit
available in my new etsy shop RedworkInGermany.etsy.com

The set has my original embroidery pattern I created based on the painting “Das Schokoladenmädchen / La Belle Chocolatiere" from Étienne Liotard (1744/45).

The original painting by the way can be admired at the Gemäldegalerie alter Meister in Dresden.

The Redwork pattern is pre-printed on a piece of white cotton that perfectly fits the wooden frame which is also part of the set as well as the embroidery floss I used for my version of the Redwork piece: Anchor #1005 and an embroidery needle.

Congratulations. Good luck for your future work. I saw almost all pages of your blog and I think they are a source of inspiration for all crafters who like redwork.
