A Snail's Pace

I am rather slow at the moment-- I have another 4 blocks to complete.  The Best Friends block needs  embroidery, The Stitching room is yet to be finished. I am going to do a Christmas tree instead of a chair, and an Apron instead of high heel shoes-- cannot walk in those!
Here is where I am up to.

 
 
 
 
 

I am going away for a couple of days, so I am madly trying to prepare the blocks so I can take them away with me. Hopefully, I will be able to get quite a bit done-- fingers crossed!!
