Progress so far...

I'm really enjoying stitching these blocks. They're such fun that I could quite happily carry on if it weren't for the need to do a little Christmas present stitching! I've completed the first 4 blocks and am almost finished with the suitcase as well. I'm stitching the little patchwork blocks on as I go. My coloured fabric is Fig Tree Buttercup. Not brilliant photos I'm sorry to say as it's dark, wet and windy wintery weather here just now.





Hope everybody else is having as much fun with these as I am :)

Theresa.
