January Take It Further Challenge



I finally got my January TIF challenge block completed. For the fabrics I used 100% cottons, silk dipioni, and silk. The threads I used are DMC Floss, DMC Rayon, DMC Jewel Effects E334 and E155, Sassa Lynne Perle Fine, and Sulky Metallic.
This was fun and I am hoping to do a block a month using the color scheme Sharon gives to us each month. Here is February's color scheme.

Now it's time to get busy and find these colors. (g)
