March is made......

It was almost finished last Tuesday.  Only one leaf on one pear left to stitch and I was set to crow from the rooftop that I was done.   It took till Friday to stitch the leaf and till today to take photos... how embarrassing is that!

I would have been done earlier but I caught a bug that laid me out for days.  Humm...  sounds like an excuse but it's true... honest.    I'm still 'off the boil' but hoping to be back in the stitching/blogging saddle tomorrow.  Fingers crossed.

Here are my little blocks.....


and the big ones.....




I love this project!    Have to wait patiently now for the next block to arrive from Aus.... when it comes I'll be ready for it.  

Hope you are all enjoying Natures Journey as much as I am.  
Keep stitching...
Hugs 
Josie

Josie, your blocks look lovely. And you have such good pictures. I suck at photography. Your hand stitching looks amazing, so even. Happy Stitching!
