March done!

Somewhere in the world it is still March, I am sure :) When my eldest son came and pinched and punched me for the first day of the month this morning, I was like - aaaaaahhhh! My blocks! I forgot to post!!!

So here they are, my first three :



I forgot to say that I have enlarged mine. The stitchery blocks have ended up 6 3/4" each. I was going to do two borders like most of you, but decided it looked boring because I only have the two colors to go around. So as you can see, I have just done the one border, and then am using the red as sashing. The finished blocks with borders are 9 3/4. Odd size, I know :) But they look good I think.


So, now to trace the next one! Yay! On we go!
