Last block!

I was lucky enough to have a lovely day at home on Saturday. I probably should have been wrapping gifts or baking but decided to start December's block and kept going! Here is the last block.
I also got excited and ended up piecing the blocks together. I am pleased with it even if quite a few of the little squares are a little wonky. Thanks so much to Chooky and to all of you for encouraging me to keep going. I am looking forward to stitching next year's project and have the delightful book already.
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with some time to stitch.

Its always a thrill to get a top put together! Perserverance pays off. It looks great! Does that mean a sneaky start on the next one??

It is just so lovely. You have done a great job. I have sewed the blocks together also but haven't upload it yet. For me it is the worst part to come now with the quilting. Merry Christmas to you.
