Ready to go

All stitcheries for block A are traced and ready to take out sewing tomorrow.
Being at home today I am using the time to cut fabrics.

I have a beautiful red Kona Bay fabric with white, pink and blue flowers I want to use for the outer border, then I am thinking something green for the inner border and for the rest I will find a little purple, red, pink, blue and a variety of greens from light to dark.

Wandering thru my stash to find something suitable I came across a box with 2½" squares, another box with 1½" strips and a huge pile of assorted green 6" squares - don't know what they were intended for - anyway they will be used to throw in some scraps.

Hello Pia
I am from Denmark too. I think we are only us two up till now. I signed in shortly before you and have finish the little bird bath from block G. It is a great work to start on but hopefully we will get inspiration from everybody to continue till the last stitch is done.
