It's been a long time coming .........

.....but finally I have Block C pieced together.  Only two to go now!!!  You may notice the dog's kennel isn't named yet - there is some debate in our home about which dog's name should be on that kennel - so we'll see who wins that battle.


Apologies for the poor photo, taken in a hurry on a dreary day.  Is anyone else still having issues getting blogger to upload photos at the moment?  It's taken me two days to get this post finished. 

I'm loving all those Tis the Season blocks - they are amazing!!

Till next time .................. happy stitching(along) .......Nicky
