No, I didn't have any trouble accepting. Maybe blogger is having a bad day? Love the Whimsicals fabric you're using to go with the stitcheries Andrea! Your quilt is going to be lovely! :0)

No trouble in accepting from this part of the world either :-)
After some serious thinking,I have deceided to do all the drawings on the white-tea-dyed fabric first of all.I see that you have done that, Andrea.Good idea! I think somebody else suggested that earlier too. Suddenly found out that otherwise the white fabric would lay about for ages.So after baby-sitting tomorrow I`ll start,unless I am totally worn out.

LOVE TO STITCH BEE TREE DESIGNS said...

This is one great project you've started. Love the colors you've chosen. Can't wait to see what everyone does. Do you mind if I just watch-a-long instead of stitching along? :) cyndi

None for me either. Apparently there were issues in Europe over the weekend, so a northern blogger friend told me. Sorted now though.

No trouble here over the ditch in New Zealand either. Stitcheries going well and am yet to decide on fabrics for piecing. Think I will go with tone on tones as I have a lovely floral piece for the border.
happy stitching
