Stitching finished!

I have managed to finish stitching all my blocks! These eleven, plus the three blocks I have previously finished means I have stitched 14 blocks all up. I have found them to be such fun. Any moment now I will border these and put the quilt together. Well, possibly not any moment. Mid May probably. I have plans for the next two weeks. I have a second lot of stitcheries traced out in case I feel the urge to stitch. Happy stitching!!!
