CHANGE OF COTTON

I stitched my first 3 blocks and really loved them and then I saw in another post a beautiful red/green thread used and thought, wow I really like that. So I asked my good friend Dawn to order me some from the USA as I am not confident to do it myself and then I could start my stitcheries again. Ididnt want to waste the originals soI have made them into a wall hanging for one of my DDs for Xmas. It has turned out very well and now I will make some more as gifts. Luckily I love to do stitcheries and these are very quick and easy to do. My thread is here so off now to cut more fabric and find new colours for my borders.
This is the wall hanging and I think it looks great.

Cheers for now, Jude from judes stuff.
