Still Stitching...

I think I can, I think I can......


Here's my choice for the next project. It started with a Moda scrap bag of Adoring and then a sale at my local shop. I worked out that I can do all the parts around the stitcheries with the strips - so it will be quite scrappy. I bought two different pieces for the main border - red and green and I won't decide which one I am going to use until the end. The stripe will be for the bindings.
The threads are Cottage Garden threads in the colour Plum Pudding. I hope it all works out.
