A Start!

Well... February has arrived!.. and here is what I've been up today....

First had to decide which background fabrics were going where - that did take some time - felt like hours! - and then the cutting started... 


with different fabrics being labeled and ...yes, there is no number 1 - not sure if I'm going to use the one I had planned or maybe look for another one .... am still thinking about it - and it's not one I needed for Part 1..... 
and then the stitching began........

Looking forward to following everyone's progress during the month...... will be back soon!

Happy Stitching
Asta
