January Complete and Pattern Arrival

Here is my January  stitchery, I used a Nancy Halverson fabric called Tidings for the border.  The binding Iam  unsure of.




Here is my copy of  Natures Journey,  it arrived from Patchwork  Angel last week!

Now I am deciding what  fabrics  to use. I am trying hard not to  purchase  any (who am I  kidding! ). Not sure if I  will go will brights or a mix of Tilda and oriental  fabrics. As to background colours,  I  have some rather (in my opinion)  nice lightish greys. I just wish I could decide  and stick to it.

Hugs  and Happy stitching

I was thinking tildas too at one stage- I think it would be lovely and light grey for the "blue"backgrounds and maybe some pinks for the border backgrounds...looking forward to this

The choice of fabrics is always the hardest for me, change my mind so many times before I choose so good luck. Hugs......
