I've found my fabrics.....

While I'm waiting on my Threads to arrive, I decided to go through my stash and find some fabrics.

I noticed Tracee was using Red & White fabrics which is what I was thinking about but wasn't sure what it would look like beside the white Stitchery Fabric.

Tracee's looks great so I've decided to use Red & White fabrics too.... Will add more to it as I need it.

Just waiting for my Country Threads to arrive and then I can start.

Loving everyone's fabrics and look forward to keeping in touch over the next 12 months.

Thank you Fiona. I saw the picture - & went 'love that' & then saw you refer to mine being similar fabrics. Yours are even cuter than mine! Tracee xx
