Lots of Colour

Yummy colours for stitching down
my backgrounds. :)

And DMC Rayon thread is yummy for doing plump
french knots when using all 6 strands.

This is great fun :)

I hope everyone else in the challenge
is having as much fun as I am :)

Happy Colourful stitching

Getting Started.CQJP

Like some others who have joined the CQJP, I cant work on one block at a time at the beginning.
So here are my blocks.
They are approx 11" sq at the mo, but after the next stage I will trim them to about 9-10. Will make a decision when i get to that part. :)

And some silk prints.

Happy stitching for 2012
