January & most of February

I'm not quite finished the row for January and February yet (but February isn't at all finished), but here are my blocks for January and some of February.Chocolates - who could resist??

The daisy just did not rock my boat so I've substituted 2 blocks - a bunch of flowers and music


a hot chocolate

and an ice cream - rum & raisin please

I wanted the cone to look realistic so I used my twin needle to criss cross the fabric to look like a waffle cone.

Off to organise the in-between blocks.
Happy Sewing everyone!
