Tis The Season!

Here's what I've been working on for the last three weeks. I've been stitching these blocks every night and enjoying stitching with one colour, needs very little brain activity, backstitch, running stitch, occassional french knot and wee bit of satin stitching. It's so relaxing. Yesterday was my rostered day off and in between some secret squirrel stuff I put the borders on and joined it together...
Now I'm hoping with this out of the way I'll be able to refocus back onto Gardener's Journal and get it finished once and for all!!

P.S. Visit my friend Fee's blog for a fabulous giveaway!
