SKOW "Tree Block"

This block has been a bit of a marathon effort....
I didn't think I would ever get all those petals stitched....
I am so glad that I am not doing needle turn!
I have put one of my new sewing tins to good use
while stitching this block and the padded top
doubles as a great pin cushion....
Thanks again Suzie Black....Mwa!
No cat for me under my tree....
I added these flowers from one of the stitcheries
in Anni's new book "The Simple Life"....
The birdie is a bit cute....
So nice to see this one all finished.....
This means 1 block left for me to stitch....
"Birdsong" Hmmmm....not sure what I will do with that one yet!
Here they are ready to be trimmed to size,
but we can't rush these things.....Lol...

Until next time, Happy Stitching

They look great all laid out - now for the strips - the easier part I think. Yes, a great tin - very handy I think - love your stitching - sew perfect.

Your blocks look great all laid out like that. I love that you put a pin cushion on your tin, clever girl.
