Tis The Season....my pattern has finally arrived!

Wow, I thought I would never get started on my TTS stitch-along project!  My pattern took 6 weeks to arrive from the USA!  Ah well, its here and I still have until midnight (Toronto Canada time! LOL)to meet Chookyblue's do-line...or is it her deadline?! LOL  Well I will give it a shot! 
Here is a picture of the fabrics I gathered while I waited for my pattern and watched the TTS SAL blog daily to see what fabric the others stitchers chose. It looks like I need to add in some red fabric though....hummm...I will have to get cracking now.  Thank you to all of you who have posted their March blocks, they are all wonderful and gave me inspiration to pick my fabrics. 
Happy Stitching,
Holly

Its lovely fabric and you wouldn't have to add red unless you wanted to, although it would bring out the reds in the prints but your thread might do that nicely....I have not cut my fabric for March's blocks yet so you aren't that far behind me...it doesn't take long to do the embroidery once you sit down with it...I'm working on mine for April right now so I can do those blocks when I do the March ones.
Blessings,
Mama Bear

Your fabrics are beautiful :-)

Don't worry that you started late because you will easily catch up. The blocks are so relaxing to stitch, and they don't take too long to do either.

I can't wait to see your blocks!!
