I'm red, red, ready to go!

I have my pattern book.

I bought my DMC threads (316).

I have a FQ bundle of Christmassy fabrics (which I won through Homespun Mag).

I love your choices...I think I'll do my embroidery in red thread and the fabrics will be similar. I have lots of Christmas fat quarters so I just need to get in there and look at them....I dread the tracing of the patterns as I always get such a neck ache afterward...I just have to bite the bullet and get started.

Yes tracing can be a pain in the neck - literally. At least these are little ones so we can take a break between each one.
