What do you think Sue S

I sewed today, put all the borders on and played with the layout. Not sure yet but I think I like it. I've kept the mittens to add to the back and have left over honey bun to play with for the back as well. You might notice I have already started block 4, it is relaxing of a night time to do some hand stitching.

Looks great!! It's a fun stitchery to do. I need to do some more borders. I find it very relaxing to sit and hand sew!! Well done - love your colours.

Looking good....it is good to have some stitching to do when sitting in the evening or when you're down with the bronchitis...not a fun way to work but it gets it done.
