April Finishes....

Hi all, I've had a case of bloggers block which has been great for my stitching, got lots done but I keep forgetting to update on all my projects.

Here's my two April blocks;


As these were completed early in the month I also borrowed Chooky's great idea of using the wreath minus the mittens as my quilt label so stitched that too.


I could have pressed it before taking the photo!

This month I hope to complete the next two blocks and make something out of my first three reject blocks (cut at 4.5 inches, I'm now using 5 inch stitchery blocks). Oh the choices.

That's 6 finished for me now Chooky seeing the label doesn't need borders.

Happy stitching
Tracee xx
