In my hoop

Next on my quilting list is The Simple Life, a Hatched and Patched design. I finished the top last September, and now it is definitely cold enough to be snuggled up quilting of an evening.

I'm using DMC Cebelia no. 30 to quilt it. It's very similar to perle 8, maybe a little finer. I got it at Spotlight mainly because of the colour. It seems to be working ok.

Happy stitching.
