Two more blocks

I didn't get as much time to stitch on my blocks this week but I have still managed to finish two more.

The cat...


and a beehive with some embroidered bees that I drew up to replace the fancy shoes...


I've almost finished the tree block. I stitched a flower on but didn't like it and took it off. Since then I've been looking at other finished tree blocks and they look great with the flowers on so I think I'll have to go back and start stitching flowers again! I'm aiming to finish my strips this week too - that's the plan anyway. Thanks for the whip cracking Chooky, it's working a treat!
