January ..... (tick)

Hi everybody.... My name is Fiona and I come from Queensland - a small town 20km out from Toowoomba... it's lovely and quiet and lots of birds around

Here is my finished January stitchery
(it has a story... thread ran, it was washed, and soaked and finally dunked in tea)

it has made a litte Christmas hanging and I even had a little hanger on hand to sew it to


My new lovely pattern arrived this week.... I do love Anni's designs and I found that I had a fat quarter bundle of French Generals waiting for the right moment ... there are some additional browns which may or may not be used.....

So lovely to be sewing with you all... I have done a couple of other stitch-a-longs hosted by Chookyblue and now Susan too and they are always so encouraging and such fun to see what everyone else is using and making....

Righto, Gotto Go.....  pattern to read.....
