May Block A finished

I managed to finish block A for May with a few days to spare. I am so pleased with the way it turned out. I invested in a seam guide for my machine and it is well worth the money.
I have finished several of the stitcheries for future blocks. I forgot to check and see which block we were doing next before doing some so now I am working on the 'No Place Like Home' and the dog house for the June block.

I am enjoying this blog so much, reading each one's post and watching their progress.
Happy stitchin'
