Finished my First Three Blocks!!!!

I've finally finished my first three blocks, so here they are (can you please mark me off?) ...


I'm quite happy with the way the colour scheme has worked so far, so I hope it will look OK when it's all put together at the end.

Now it's time to work on one of my other BOMs until next month. I can't wait to see how you other ladies are going with yours, so I will definitely be here to keep up with you all.

Hugs,
Vicky xxx
