All Blocks Complete :-)

Well Chooky .. after seeing that whip of yours, I had no intention of incurring your wrath .. lol .. That said, I have completed all the blocks and will be moving on to putting it all together and adding a few embellishments in the coming weeks/months. I am also working on a couple of other projects so I can give them some attention now too.




I am happy with the way they have come together, and I can’t wait to finish it off and hang it up this Christmas. I will be enjoying shopping for some beads and bits to add the finishing touches.

It's been lovely seeing everybody’s TIS blocks and they are looking so different. I can’t wait to see them all completed and hanging up this Christmas J
