Blocks & Fabrics

Hi, my name is Jeanette.
I traced out my blocks back in January ready to start & have since embroidered 3.
Well that wasn't a good photo.  Just realised i cut off part of a block. :(
I was also looking for the right fabrics & was beginning to despair when someone mentioned getting a kit from Tereasa. The kit arrived today.

Gorgeous fabrics for me to play with.
