Thank you for inviting me to participate in the blog. I realise I'm about three months behind everyone else, but I hope that inspires others to start whenever they can. I received the magazine at the beginning of January and have read and re-read it from cover to cover half a dozen times whilst deciding what fabrics to use. Initially I chose the sunkissed line pictured below which I received yesterday, but decided against them as they don't have as great a variety of colours as the stitchery.
I could have changed the colours in the stitchery but as I've never attempted a stitchery before, I thought that might be beyond my capabilities, so early last week I ordered It's a Hoot by Momo. The parcel of fabric has just arrived, so I've unwrapped them for you to enjoy along with me.
I have a free day on Thursday so I think I will be making my churn dash blocks, whilst I wait for my threads to arrive from Sandy at Cookies & Cream and my red and white dots and background fabric from a local supplier. I have my magazine, embroidery hoop and 2H pencils all in a container ready to start!!
I will be back later in the week with my churn dash blocks completed.
