I received my pattern!

I ordered my pattern from Treasured Threads, I have ordered from Shannon many times and have always received great customer service. She carries many patterns from Australian designers and very inexpensive compared to some other places. Now to pick out the fabrics and start stitching!! Well, I have to finish Gardeners Journal first, maybe, heck who cares, add another project to the basket, a very big basket.

I hope you are having a great day and will find a little stitching time, it is good for the soul!!

Sounds great Mama Bear - I started tracing tonight. Just got 6 traced so I will wait and finish up some other things (Like gardeners journal) and start with you on Tuesday.
Chooky I am stitching away on it. Stitched for two hours today.
Lynn - great! - I cannot wait to see the fabrics you choose.
