Red... Mom's favorite color!

This shades of red thread was calling to me when I was working on my last Dragon Wing Doily. (It really does look like red in person.) I was hoping for more subtle shading, but I've learned that sometimes you really don't know what you'll get until you try it! I was trying pay close attention to the color change when I added more thread, but I didn't get it right, so there's a little puddle of pink. Oh, well! I still think it's pretty! Would you like me to send it to you, Mom?
