April Deadline....Missed...

Still No Background Fabric to Stitch On, Waaaahhhhhhh.  The fabric ordered on 6 April has still NOT arrived!  Have you ever felt jinxed?  I certainly do with trying to get this fabric and all we want is plain...ordered muslin at the beginning of February...no go...moved across to Moda Bella Solid...still no go.  It seems like it would easier to obtain some rare vintagey one 2" square left in the entire world fabric than a good old plain solid!!!! And in a cream/beige colour no less, not even a colour that isn't as common as common - sheesh!

So I'm reduced to Gardener's Journal Envy as I sit and watch all the progress and lovely results of Everyone Else in this stitch-a-long...or for me...Stitch-A-Watch!  That means that I'm going to have to stitch doubly hard in May...if I ever get background fabric.

Well done ladies on your April blocks...I hope to join in One Day!

Happy stitching...
Annette

Annette, come visit my blog I have several redwork/stitchery freebies to stitch while you're waiting for fabric to come.

How much fabric do you need just for the stitchery parts, I'm just watching all the things you guys are doing and not stitching along, so I don't have the book. But the quilt store has plenty of fabric. Would you fancy a Kona in cream or do you want beige? I'm pretty sure she has the bella solids too. The store carries a lot of moda fabrics. email me. Cyndi

And I thought I was the only one!!
Partly my own fault,but it is sad,so I understand you. I`ll cheer you up: Start stitching,then enjoy every stitch, you`ll have a super time while you waiting :-)
Happy Stitching.
