This is the second round of my previous penny square swap. This one has a theme: birds! To be a bit different from the first round we will be sticking to a theme. Think bluebirds, chickens, penguins, geese, any type of bird you can think of. Be creative, redwork only, 6"x6", muslin/linen/cotton etc.

This is a nice simple embroidery swap for us redwork lovers! You will stitch 2 redwork 'penny squares' approx 6"x6" in size and send them to your partner. Nothing fancy, just a nice simple swap to make you smile. Plenty of time to sign up and send out.

Whats a penny square? "In America, dry goods stores sold 6 inch muslin squares marked with a variety of designs for a penny each. These "penny squares" are often seen incorporated into old Redwork bedspreads and linens. The patterns are usually simple line drawings."

No newbies without permission, no no-sends, no ratings below 4.7. Embroider on muslin, calico, white cotton, anything within that definition. I will ban any unreliable swappers before the partners are assigned.

Hello, May I use an embroidery machine or MUST they hand stiched? Thanks -- Yvette

Effie - leave a little for seams, it's not a hard and fast rule. Depends how close to the edge of the square your design is.

PeppermintChick - hand embroidery only.
