I've made a start!

I made a start at the weekend, finally got it together and just pulled some fabric together, and hey presto. It helped that we had a few trips over the weekend, so several hours in the car, and stitching heaven!
and this morning, while I  was musing over my breakfast cuppa, and the paper, I had a sudden thought that these fabrics would be just great!!
So, in business... as they say....

have a fun week, Shiree

Shiree - they are beautiful and cheerful. I can't wait to see your thread choice.

oops your thread choice is above and looks perfect. I missed it because I was distracted by your fabrics!

gorgeous fabrics. Did you use different coloured threads for your fabric? It looks like it on my computer....they look great whatever way they are stitched!
Happy Stitching, Susie
