I've started...

I went away on the weekend and thought it would be a good opportunity to start on "Tis the Season". I managed to trace some of the blocks and stitched one.
It is such fun and so easy to stitch in one colour. It meant I could chat easily without checking the pattern too much.
I am going to use my red fabric stash for my borders. I love red and can't resist collecting fat quarters so it will be good to use some up.
Happy stitching,
Sylvia in Australia
