Catching Up!

Good afternoon,

It's been a tough month in the household.  After 10 years, one of the companies I work for closed its doors.  It's been very hectic helping with the liquidation and planning for the future.  (The multi-day power outage after a fluke storm didn't help!)

Here are block 12 and label.

I think Santa in block 12 looks a little wonky (maybe because I stitched him via candlelight?) but the block is actually square.


My least favorite block in the book turned out to be my most favorite to stitch - love this label!



Going out of town this weekend and have several final commitments coming up so my goal is to at least have the top assembled by October.

Happy Stitching!
Elisa

The mittens block is my least favourite as well - but yours is gorgeous! I think you've inspired me to actually stitch that one!
