But to be honest, the amount of work is massive! Or perhaps I am just a super slow embroiderer but each block takes me around a month of solid stitching every night and my attention span just does not last that long.
The first three blocks did get finished on time and I optimistically embroidered a date on one block:
But then Master Berry came along and life got on the way and the blocks remained untouched on the shelf until I finally picked it back up a couple of months ago and finished the centre block.
Well, I say finished but as I was taking some photos (and yes it was night so bear with me here) I spotted these flowers I missed:
Damn. I hate that. And I was ready to pack it safely away with the other completed blocks.
But I am happy to say that I quickly stitched them and almost as quickly finished the next block.
I haven't started on the next one yet and I am going to hold off for a while as I want to start a couple of small Christmas projects and if I don't start now they won't be done in time.
