April Blocks

Yesterday i added the sashings to the blocks for April. I had even replaced some of the outer sashings i had on 2 blocks from the March posting as i wasn't happy with the way i'd paired them. I  was then ready to take the photo & when that was done i went to pack them up & check for what was May's blocks when i discovered to my horror i'd posted 1 wrong block for March. May not seem like a big thing but i'm a bit pedantic about things being right but i'm not a perfectionist. I knew i wouldn't be happy until i fixed it. Off came the sashings of all 5 blocks late yesterday evening & then back on they went. So here's the right 3 blocks for March & the 2 for April.
Happy Stitching, Jeanette

Oh,I feel so half hazard next to your perfection!! But they do look nice. I think it is good that you pack them away each month. It gives one something to look forward to. I think I want to do that with my next set.
