Red Work Farm

 
As a way to honor and remember my friend Maxine,
I am giving away a kit for Red Work Farm.

 
This was Maxine's version.

 
A 1996 design from Laurene Sinema combining
applique and stitchery.

 
The kit includes instructions, background muslin, floss
and fabrics for the applique.
 
I have to restrict this to US residents only
and I would appreciate it if you are
a follower of my blog. 
 
I'll choose a winner next week.

  10. I spent every summer as a child on my "Up North" grandparents farm. I still cherish the happy memories of that time in my life-gathering eggs, jumping in the oat bins, driving the cattle to pasture-a wonderful experience for children!

  11. How thoughtful of you to honor Maxine in this way. I love the simplicity of this design. I'm a primitive person and this is lovely. I was raised on my grandparents farm. I enjoy your blog and all the animals you show us.

  12. I do miss Maxine and hearing about her life, it seems we have lost so many in the past years and she will always be in our hearts.

  13. That is a lovely thought, to share your friend's interest with others. Alas, I live in Australia, best wishes to the others that are eligible.

  21. You are thoughtful and remembering a friend like this would make her blush inside knowing how much you liked her. I don't need the kit but just wanted you to know that although you may not personally care for winter time since you have a more "real" winter than North Carolina, but I am looking forward to your winter because of your beautiful photos of animals that visit you! But first I hope your fall is everything you would like it to be!
