Then I realised we are not supposed to be going at this fast pace. Silly me.
Well at least for once I can say I am organised!!!!!!!!!
I can have a little rest now until April.
I have chosen to use the similar colour way as in the original mainly because I have a fair bit of this colour fabric in my stash (which I should be using up) and I like this colourway anyway.
Although I have seen a lot of great colour combos on the blog and am eager to see them all finished later this year.
I am stitching on a linen and using DMC 115 which is a variegated thread which I am using because I already have a couple of skeins in my stash of threads and it compliments the rosy pinks and reds very nicely.
I have decided not to do the border stitching on the blocks as I had already cut all the stitching blocks to size (in my uber zealousness) before realising it is a very tight squeeze. I can probably still add the borders on some blocks but on others it isn't possible. I think they still look okay without it so I'm not overly worried by my little mistake.
I preferred to sew the border fabric onto the stitchery blocks before stitching so I would have
something to hang onto while stitching.
I'm really happy with how much I have achieved so far and if I get a little behind other months it will be okay. It is looking really nice.
Roll on April.
