I am such an under achiever!

Everyone is doing such beautiful work on their TTS blocks. I am loving seeing all the different interpretations. However shameful my effort may be, here are my blocks so far, stitching done on two, started on a third, and three more blocks assembled and waiting to be traced. Life is busy as we all know...I will catch up at some stage!
