The First Five...

...stitcheries finally stitched...





...I know, they are not actual blocks...as all my inner borders are different fabrics (all the cutting out has taken place) and as I'm using a variegated thread I'm going to stitch all the stitcheries first to see how the colours in the thread play out in each one, then play with layout and audition inner borders to see which one wants to go where...so for now, although I'm up-to-date with the stitcheries in the plan my name will be "blockless" for a while longer...

All the variations are looking fabulous...loving seeing all your lovely blocks...

Happy Stitching...
Annette
