Sunday Stitch decisions made – and a wee bit of stitching

So as my last blog post said I’ll be joining friend Judy and stitching along with her on her Sunday stitch project, Eliza M. Stone from Whilst Iris Naps.    I pulled fabric last night and after going back and forth on color choice decided on a pretty purple that has brighter and darker sections in it.    And since  had to test out the fabric/thread combination, I stitched on it last night.  I’ll be putting it away now to save for stitching  on Sundays only but I couldn’t resist a wee start. 🙂

The floss is Victorian Motto and the color is Purple Spirits.  The fabric is Fiber on a Whim 20 ct aida in the color Milk & Honey.  it’s going to end up being about 6.75″ x 7.75″.  Now to go find a project bag to put this in and cut off the excess fabric since I know how wide it will be now.   I really like this fabric so I may need to find something small to stitch on the other half of it.  It is amazing how quickly stitching goes when you aren’t having to switch any colors.
