Quaker Gone Tropic SAL Progress

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.

The color is very pretty and looks good on your fabric! Over one, my hat is off to you! It will be fantastic though.

Wow! Over one! :-)

I finally ordered my floss so I'll start when it arrives.
