Gathering supplies for the Stitch Along

I spent a lovely half hour yesterday afternoon gathering my supplies for the stitch along.
I was lucky enough to have everything in my stash.  😀






 I have photocopied the fox from the Enchanted Forest coloring book.  Katie suggests in her video tutorial that you enlarge 170% but my home photocopier only goes to 140%.  This is quite a nice size for this project for me.  I am thinking that instead of a cushion, I will most likely frame my finished piece.
The next job will be to trace it onto my fabric, using my lovely light box that was a gift from my brother.  If you don't have a light box there are some wonderful new slimline ones on the market or you can take your piece to a window, place them against the windowpane, and trace it that way.


I have a little stitch practice piece set up in my embroidery hoop.   I have drawn the foxes nose lightly in pencil.     As I haven't done satin stitch in awhile I thought this a good idea.  I will show you my steps as I go along.
