January 2015 Sunbonnet Sue is iconic. When she's done right, she's just adorable. Admittedly, there are some Sues I like better than others. The vintage, homey, sweet Sunbonnet Sue - well, she just pulls my little heartstrings. And so, there I was, a few weeks ago, meandering through new embroidery books out on the market, when my eyes were arrested by a whole redwork collection devoted to the sweet, vintage, homey Sue that I love! Sunbonnet Sue Redwork Collection offers 16 different Sunbonnet Sue vignettes. Some are a little more elaborate than others - all are Perfect Sue. In addition to the iron-on transfer designs and the embroidery itself, there are suggestions and instructions for ten projects that can be made with the finished redwork Sues. Pros & Cons: Well, I can't think of any cons at all - the book gives everything it promises, and it's easy to understand, well-written, and very affordable. If you like redwork, or if you like vintage embroidery vignettes, or if you like Sunbonnet Sue - all are good reasons to love this book and add it to your needlework library!
