M is for Mouse

At last – another block finally finished from my Christmas ABC blocks.  Although I’ve been concentrating such a lot on my UFO collection, and winning the battle with one or two of them, I’m pleased to say, I still like to do a little work on my stitchery blocks when I can.

I’ve just completed “M is for Mouse”, a cute little Christmas mouse peeping around from the Letter M.  This is another delightful design from Michelle Ridgeway’s Alphabet Noel booklet.  When completed, all my Christmas ABC blocks will finally get made into a Christmas quilt – but that’s a long way off yet.  Meanwhile, I'm enjoying my "slow stitching".

Love the way the maple leaves are turning out, Jenny. I understand the need for hand stitching...so calming and enjoyable.
