I did manage to start Quaker Gone Tropic on the first. I'm stitching it over 1 on 25 count lugana so it's been sort of slow going. I wasn't sure when I started it if I liked this color thread on this fabric but the more I see it, the more I like it. The fabric is from Stitches & Spice over in Australia. When I received it, Dave asked if I didn't have any fabric in my stash to do this. To be honest, I have a ton of fabric but absolutely none of it was the color I was looking for. So I could honestly say, "No, dear, I don't have fabric for this." The thread is the only one I used that is called for in the pattern. It's Pears & Poppies from Silk 'N Colors. The other colors are from Threadworx. I'm anxious to see how they look as well.
