Just for you Chookyblue :)

A "G" block before the end of July, right?

Here's mine all done. I think the sprinkler is one of my favourite blocks...it reminds me of the long hot summer afternoons of my childhood.

But then, the little birds are sweet too, aren't they?

Thanks so much for letting me get involved in this Stitch-A-Long...I am loving seeing everyones progress, and check in most days to see where you are all up to :)
Have a great day!
