Better late than never

 Well its been a long time in the 'stash' planning, but finally I pulled out these fabrics today to get going on my Stitch-a-long organised by the wonderful Chookyblue.



We are following the above-shown pattern in the book by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched.

 I feel bad that some people have finished but, you know...life gets in the way, I have been following the blog and the work some people are doing is amazing.



 I feel I need some more smoky blue/grey colours? or a duck egg blue?


I do like these though........

OK, wish me luck as I embark on my first foray into needleturn applique......

Happy Stitching, Susie
