I have my pattern

 I was so excited when I went to work this week at Hobbysew (in Canberra) and the pattern  for Nature's Journey was in stock. I have lots of other stitching to do but had to fiddle with fabrics for this. I do like Anni's colours so will try to be a bit similar but use some of the stash (will probably buy lots too!)
 I bought a few blues yesterday for backgrounds. Not sure about the front stripe. It might be a bit bright.
I must trace Anni's little stitchery and get going on that.

Sylvia I love the fabrics. I was at Hobbysew Belconnen yesterday and when I talked about the pattern there was no mention about having it or getting it in.
Have now ordered from Anni and can't wait for it to arrive.

Good to Know Sylvia as i am popping into Hobbysew Kings Park on Sunday so hoping they have it in stock there, then I can start to put my fabrics together to see what goes and what doesn't.
So excited to see all of the enthusiasm on this blog, well done Susan and Chooky

Sorry Simone about the pattern at Hobbysew. It is only new and perhaps the staff member didn't realise it was there.
