Finally an update....

Hi all, well finally I can show something achieved. I've managed to decide on my fabrics and have chosen these ones I have been given last year in a swap - Portobello Market from 3 Sisters, it will look great as I am doing my stitcheries in DMC 3863, a lovely latte colour.

And I can now declare that I have finished stitching Blocks G and A ...........

At the moment because of my back problems and being unable to sit and sew, I am just completing as many of the stitchery blocks as I am able. So I am still keeping on top of things, it just means that one month I won't have any stitching but lots of sewing.
I am enjoying doing this with all you other ladies, everyone's enthusiasm is such a buzz and keeps it  all alive for us all.
Thanks Chooky. xx
P.S Sorry about the wrinkling stitcheries, have just washed out the blue pen and they are wet.

I did wonder why the stitcheries were rumpled-- all was revealed and I am sure that when we see them sewn into blocks they will take on another apperance.

Another monochrome scheme - latte, what a great choice to go with such a pretty fabric range.
