August weekend design

This was one of the few SAL scheduled weekends where I was actually not scheduled to work so I took advantage of that and stitched "Heartfelt Harvey" designed by Imaginating, Inc.. The design is from JCS 2008 and was inspired by a style called redwork aka turkeywork. I did not have enough red in my mystery thread pile to do the whole design in one single colour so I played around with the thread and fabric colour.
