I'm making progress! :0)

I'm so happy I've been able to keep up with this stitch-along. I've just finished block C. I sort of cheated on this block a bit, or you might say I just made the block my own. I was looking at the roof of the house and thought to myself...what if I only did every other line on the roof? Would it look OK? And then I wondered if it might be OK to just do every other fence post. So that's what I did an I'm really happy with how it came out. I think it looks less busy this way, and it saved me a lot of time stitching too.

And here are blocks C and D sewn together.


And blocks C, D, F and G laid out together. I'm really pleased with how this is starting to look! :0)

I love your adaption of the house block, particularly the fence. Doing every second fence post opens up the front garden. It's like the viewer can see into the front yard more. Well done. Your blocks do look good together,

I love your house and fence...how exciting to be able to lay out three blocks together, looking good.
