Oooooops I didn't post ...... and now I'm late

Hi girls, I have had so much fun in February working on my SAL, I sooooo love it.  No excuse for being late, stitching was on time, bad blogger ooops!

I couldn't work out which fabric I preferred.   I started with a red colourway (as is my favourite colour to work with) using French General, I wasn't completely happy ......





and started again using a blue background, similar to the original and love it.





I am so enjoying needle turn and am really happy with my results.  I experimented using a long very thin needle and the results have been very rewarding.  This quilt is so addictive.

I hope you forgive me Chooky, promise to be up to date with blogging this month :))))))

Happy Stitching

I like them both - but you have to be happy with it too...you are so right about the longer thinner needles.
