Fabric arrived!

My fabric arrived from Needle In a Haystack  this morning - really fast shipping from California to the UK!
I am still undecided which to use for Hannah Beeby so I will wait until my silks arrive from Vicki Clayton and I will decide then. But ...  is 40ct getting smaller or do I need new prescription lenses?? It's a long time since I stitched anything on 40ct so I have decided to stitch a test piece first - I will probably make a Quaker scissor fob to match my project.   

I had an email from Carol S at the weekend giving me the name of my partner in the HOE biscornu exchange and I am gathering fabric and floss together for that.  I have sort of decided what to stitch so will make a start on this later today. But you will have to wait for pictures until it's stitched, mailed and received by my partner. I have been to visit her blog to see what she likes and really hope I can come up with something to please her. 

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    That fabric looks gorgeous Carol. I've never stitched on 40 count and, if I'm honest, I'm not sure that I could! However I do manage on 36 count so maybe it wouldn't be so bad!

    Lovely fabric.

    Sorry Carol I don't seem to have an email from you. Can you re-send. It isn't anything technical is it!!?

    Hello Carol,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I just made a start on yours, it's nice! Good luck with your HB, that is a beautiful sampler. And I love your little strawberry fob!
