Hello from Huntsville, Alabama in the USA

Thank you for allowing me to join you on this stitch-a-long. I just discovered you all at the end of last week. I love what you're doing. I had to order the book from Australia, couldn't find it in the US at least not online. Hopefully, it won't take as long as they said to ship. I got it from Patchwork Angel.
I have read all of your posts and seen your lovely work. I'm going to be behind but that's okay. I had these fabrics and I thought they would be good for this project.What do you think? What do you think I should use for the background on the stitching and the backing for it. I read that you are using different things. I like the idea of using one color thread as some of you are doing but I like the ones with different colors, too.
Looking forward to more posts and pictures from you.

All of your fabric would lend to one colour stitching, are you going for red. blu or green ? We will have to wait and see Margaret
