I think I've done it, I hope I've done it

After puddling around with a variety of fabrics for a few days I think I have finally chosen my fabrics for 'A Gardeners Journal, however I'm not entirely sure on the mauve piece in there - what do you think? Oooo, decisions, decisions.
I hope the rest of you are having an easier time selecting your fabrics.

I love your fabrics. Everyone has different takes on what suits. I myself like your choices. Go with your gut feeling if you dont like one take it out and place another in it place trail and error. Hope this helps Andrea
