I thought in the first photo they were individual lengths of the same pattern in different colourways. It wasn't until I looked at the second photo that I realised it's all graded. Love the second fabric in the paler colours. Like the first one too but it would take some getting used to. :o

I had to order a top up of Oakshott for my colour scheme - it is rather a contrast to Iminei’s fabric!
Excellent service from Oakshott - I ordered yesterday morning and it was on my desk this morning.

This pattern is tempting me very much, but first I have to finish my two Bargello and start (and finish) the third one. Then I may start with that (if they is enough time left before Easter  ;)

Oakshott are wonderful!

Not only the fabrics but the service ...

Many times they have had me babbling on the phone trying to make my mind up what to buy, then an alternative address to send to, no invoice, that comes to me etc etc and they handle it all beautifully!

If you ever get a chance to visit them, do ... its like a sweet shop!

And Sakar and I have this from them too ...



Have you made it yet darling???

The flying geese section has been completed and I am still wondering how such small pieces on the pattern require what seem to be such large pieces of fabric. There probably won’t be much more progress until next month’s MQG meeting.

Here’s the attachment again as the geese had flown away during forum maintenance (and worry not, @Iminei , the paper is still on the other side).

@Iminei I converted the pattern from gif to pdf and printed it onto 50gsm A4 paper using the tile and scale functions so I could have multiple copies if needed.

I’ve read through the instructions and I think I might be ignoring them and making it up as I go along as I don’t fancy trying appliqué with monofilament.
