GOOD NIGHT OR GOOD MORNING?

Ciao to all :)

here in Italy it's 11.20, i think it will be a nice, relaxing week-end dedicated to stitchery and patch.

here is  my first block, I enlarged the stitchery to 6,5" and the stripes to 2,5".
making some math, border included, it will be about 170 x 190 cm.








my colours



and these wonderful fabrics for the borders. i found them in my favourite shop here in Milano.

hugs to all

Kokina

p.s. thanks for this wonderful blog Chooky :) I am having a lot of fun stitching this project (^..^)
