Block H Finished

Below is block H which I completed to-day. This is number 5 so four more blocks to go. I have traced all the remaining stitcheries onto my background fabric so I know just how much I have left to do. It's a bit daunting but I guess I'm up for the challenge. Thanks for all your encouragement and comments on my posts.

I am looking forward to also stitching 'Tis The Season' blocks as well when it starts in March. I have the book and the background fabric but have yet to purchase the rest of the fabric needed.
Well, that's all from me for now. I love all the quilts that have been finished and hopefully, I will be able to join that group in the not too distant future.
Cheers to all
Noela.
