Well I've finished the 3 little stitchery designs for the first month of Wish You Well, which is a mystery BOM by the Australian designer Gail Pan. Each month you are emailed a PDF file with a picture of that month's block, full size stitchery design to trace, and all cutting instructions. It's great for using up scraps, although if you're like me and you pass them on to other people, it's a great excuse to buy more fabric! It's taken me a while to get started on this as I was deliberating over fabrics and colours, but once I'd decided on the Super Bloom collection of fabrics by Edytar Sitar there was no stopping me! I particularly like these background fabrics that are part of the collection. I've used a variety of threads for the hand embroidery - perle, stranded cottons, plain colours and variegated - and I'm really pleased with my progress so far. My tasks for this evening will be to prepare lots of fabric circles ready to be appliqued into place. If you want to sign up to this, all the details are on Gail's website!
