Oops

I did sign up for FNWF but forgot to do my own post about it. It was a late start, and I only managed to appliqué two shapes on my Irish Circles, better than nothing I guess.

I also got some happy mail from The Stitchers Cupboard. I ordered my Floral Beauty backing Wednesday, and it arrived Friday. Very happy with the service. I love the smokey purple, and the small print.

It's a long weekend here, I'm hoping to sneak away and sew.
Happy stitching,
Susan x

  13. Your Irish Circles are stunning. Love your choice of backing the colour is just perfect. Is the small dark print at the bottom your binding fabric? Love that too. You're two circles closer to the finish line... all progress is good. Have fun!
