WIP Wednesday For August 12, 2015

I managed to get a wee bit done yesterday on my newest start. I really do love the colors I have chosen for this project and, naturally, the fabric is an absolute favorite of mine. I really do love the  Legacy  by Picture This Plus no matter the count. The color is just divine and lends itself to a whole host of different designs. 

Well, enough of my blathering, on with the pictures! :)
