Ready for some stitching

Can't wait to start, picked my fabric - a honey bun of Glace by Moda, DMC stranded cottons 3857 to 3864, pattern from The Stitcher's Cupboard. Local for me so the pattern came postage free in fact delivered to the door, hows that for great service.
I've picked a simple white on white for the stitcheries, the pattern is hearts and stars. This afternoon I am going to start to draw the patterns onto it.

Glace is lovely. I've got a charm pack which I've been saving for "the right" project. Your quilt will look lovely!

Sounds like a plan...I can't wait to see the first stitcheries appearing on here...

Hi Sue,

You're the only one (that I've noticed) who plans to use a variety of floss colors for the stitch along. It's amazing how each person personalizes the project. In the end we'll all have very individualized little quilts even though we are all doing the same project.
