It's here ...

my fabric arrived, the colours look a bit different in real life but I'm happy with them. I bought quite a bit of the paler green one (on the LHS) as I intend to use that for my backing as well.


I finished off my second stitchery today and after I have washed the fabrics I will cut out the strips so I can be ready to finish off the blocks properly.  I've just been spending 30 minutes each day on the stitchery so I will continue doing that and I should be on track for a finish in September.

Great idea doing the 30 minutes a day Pip. I am a little more erratic! Tracee xx
