I love stitching the blocks for this project, it’s just lucky I have so many things on the go or I would have kept going & finished them all. :-)

Wow thanks everyone for your kind words!!! I wondered if I'd done the right thing going with different colours. It's been especially challenging finding a colour to substitute for white, as in Santa's trim & beard, but I've gone with grey tones & they seem to work.
