February Complete

I finally completed  February's  blocks! After much umming and arhing, I  settled on Suffolk Puffs (Yoyos), instead of the circles!




I chose Cottage Garden threads for the embroderiory used in February  blocks. The colours I selected  are:-
1201 Snapdragon
503 Peacock
1001 Red Carnation
605 Cherry Blossom
710 Farmers Market.

This was my first time undertaking  needle turn appliqué,  once I got the  hang of it, I  began to relax a little. Though it requires vast  improvement,  I am  reasonablely happy with the blocks.

Now to get rady for work. Hugs Sharon
