Ready to begin

Well, it's a new year and I'm ready to begin. All the Christmas projects are completed, and there are no excuses ;-) I have decided on making my version of the overlapping circles cushion. It will be stitched with linen thread on a linen/cotton fabric, I think... I'm not quite sure about the thread - it might be too thin to give the kind of coverage I want, so I might replace it with wool, but at least this is what I'll start with.

Can't wait to see it. The colors are lovely.

Great colors. I agree about the linen thread. In fact I used it for a pillow I did over Christmas (something to do while in the car for hours on end) and found it tended to split and frey more than I expected. It certainly is not up to the task of 'removing' stitches when an error is made. But I liked the non-glossy look of the fiber.

Good luck.
