Okay, so much fun!

I broke open my bundle of Oakshotts and started playing the other day.  I thought I would need more time to think about it.  In fact, I even told Mum that I needed to think about it for a bit and that I was not thinking of starting to use them yet.  But I did.  And it was so much fun.  Before I took the ribbon off the bundle, I threw it at my husband like a football.  That was fun.  It is a very substantial stack of fabric and it surprised him.  Then I took the bundle apart and paired up the colours.  I tried not to take too much time doing this because, let's face it, all the colours are fabulous.  

Then I got cutting.  Eek!  And piecing.  Eek!  Trees!  Look at all of them.  It is almost a forest!

Linking up with Lee for Work in Progress Wednesday and the Needle and Thread Network for Canadian bloggers.
