Excitement is Mounting!

I have my pattern and excitedly awaiting day one. I'm using a Moda Marble (kinda tea-died looking) for my background and stitching with a darker red DMC 815. I haven't picked out my other fabrics - I piece after I stitch.

Can't tell you how excited I am to join you! I've been drooling over your GJ for months!

This is the 2nd holiday redwork project I'm working on. If you get a chance, stop by today and see my latest posted block!

Thank you SO much for letting me play along!

Hi Elisa!

I am excited about this SAL too. I loved your redwork snowman! Very cute. I am a huge redwork fan. I have also done another Christmas redwork quilt (Rosalie Quinlan). Hope you are not freezing too badly!

Thanks Chooky & Kris! Was SO excited I went out and bought more floss, just in case :) I probably have enough to make dozens of blocks.
