July Centre Block

Well I've been stitching, stitching and more stitching. The centre block was quite deceiving in how big it was -
But it's finished. I've opted not to put the little hexagon and circle in - I loved it how it was and I didn't think it needed it - sorry Anni.  But loved this centre block.  I havn't added the little peeper yet because, sob, sob my centre block is half an inch smaller  than it's supposed to be despite using a 1/4" foot, so I'm going to have to add a small border instead to make it the right size.  Never mind - small hiccup

gee...I guess I should measure mine. Didn't realize the little peeper was part of this month. A little clued out I guess. Oh well, you will add a zinger and it will look amazing!

I didn't realise the peeper was included this month too….and I'd better do a measure.
I thought the centre was deceiving too..there was a lot of stitching in it!!
