Challenge 7 Red Items

 PaintedfansofjapanW PaintedfansofjapanW2

Painted Fans of Japan on my Japanese sewing box called a Haribako 1920’s. Notice the ruler at the rear of the top photo. My little pincushion has a cat button turned up for you to see. The mechanism inside is to act as the third hand for holding the kimono fabric as you handsew them together and also to hold the threads.


The red of the Sturt Peas (South Australia’s flower) in the stained glass at our front door.

He is a pincushion.  My Sister-in-Law made him for me :-) The sweet little needlecase with the little ladybird pin for goodluck was made by my Dear Friend Nancy. One side has Strawberries in the centre and the other a bird. We collect bird fabrics :-)

Vulcan Minor Front 1

A Red Toy Sewing Machine. Had to have one of those didn’t we :-) This is a little Vulcan from the 50’s.

RedRoseW5Geranium1W  Red flowers from the garden A rose and a Pelagonium :-)


“Spring Radiance” A predominately Red Quilt made in a Judy Hooworth workshop quite a number of years ago.

I do have bright fabrics too :-)


My Kaffe Fassett Bag :-) Now I would like to Challenge Lurline to join in the fun and find 7 pink things from her home.  Cheers Lynne

Wauh, you did this much quicker than I did. The little red sewing machine is sooo cute, the pincushions funny and the stained glass in your frontdoor is fantastic.
Cheers Anne-Mette
PS - so happy you joined the fun.
