And the journey begins...

Hi! I'm very excited to join in this year's Stitch-a long. For my quilt, I'm going to use a couple of Martinique layer cakes with a few extra fabric's thrown in.



I'm going to try my hand at hand applique, and we'll see how I go. Here's my first little block..


And I know I messed up the words...I was trying to save time by not searching for my light box...sigh...

Now onto a cup of tea (which I think I might end up being a cup of coffee as I'm addicted to the stuff!)

Look forward to stitching a long with you all.

Welcome...like you first block....I thought I would make the cup of chocolate a cup of coffee which is more appropriate to 'my favorite things'...

Beautiful fabrics. I can't decide between tea or coffee, good thing I haven't started yet. xx

The fabrics are gorgeous and I really like the dotty background fabric too! (I want a lightbox, my arm gets so sore at the window!).
