Billy was my swap partner in the Christmas swap, and in my package she slipped in a package of Christmas charms, but I did not know this as the envelope had opened in transit and they had fallen out. I commented on how sweet the little charms were that she had stitched on my block and she asked me if I had received the ones she had sent, which of course I did not.
But look what arrived in the post today
And a warm welcome to the 6 inch and 12 inch swap groups.
I have also been busy sewing more FWQA blocks this week and am up to block 17. I am not sure where the group is up to, but I must be getting close to catching up.
I have redone block 14. Butterfly at the Cross roads as I did not like the green I had used, plus it turned out a bit lopsided and not completely square. I am much happier with the replacement block- below.

When I was posting this picture I noticed a mistake in block 16, so it looks like I have some unpicking to do.
The half square triangles should all lead out from the centre block so the two on the right side of the picture are wrong. (GGrr). It looks like I just stitched that right hand side on back to front as the blue floral print also has the stems facing in, not out like all of the other three sides. Funny how I only noticed this error now.
