It's a start! :0)

First of all I want to say thank you to Chookyblue for allowing me to join this lovely group and for setting up this blog so we can all stay motivated to get this project done! And thanks to Peg and several other ladies for encouraging me to jump right in even though I have so many other things I ought to be working on instead of starting something new. But start I did so here we go! :0)


I went to the fabric store on Thursday to find something to use for the stitcheries. I found some Kona muslin and decided that would have to do. So Friday I got the first little stitchery traced and stitched! I have the second one traced but haven't started stitching yet. I had pulled out some fabrics from my stash to use for this project, but now I think I'm going to try to use a jelly roll instead. This is American Primer and I just love the colors in it. So we'll see how well this plan works when I actually start trying to sew together blocks! I don't think that will be anytime soon though! I've got a long way to go! LOL
