Close to A Start

I have coffee dyed my fabric for the Me, Myself and I RR and I now just basting the edges by hand. I must say that I am not really happy with the fabric I have, I was hoping to use 40ct and not 32ct, but I just could not find anyone that stocked it in the brand I wanted. Lakeside linens and R & R Reproduction fabrics are almost impossible to find here in Australia. Here is the layout I have chosen. It's about 337 x 333 stitches in size. All the charts have been purchased and the threads have been ordered. I am only working with DMC, but some designs are going to need at least two skeins of some colours.
Here are the charts I am using:

Pear Orchard Farm - Barrick Samplers
Where My Heart Blooms - Blackbird Designs
Their Song - Blackbird Designs
Hopeful - Carriage House Samplings
Fruit of the Spirit - Plum Street Samplers
Friendship Sampler - Hillside Samplings
Peace - Birds Of A Feather
The Good Neighbour - The Drawn Thread

Good for you dyeing your own fabric. :) I used the border from Good Neighbors for my piece - since my piece was larger than the chart I had to do a lot of copying and pasting together of pieces to make it work. It's not a totally repeatable border so that made it tricky. Good luck on your stitching!
