I've been stitching away but I haven't been home much over the holidays so didn't have time to press them after washing until today. I used several greens for the leaves in block 8 but think I'll stick to one or two leaf prints for the rest of my blocks. I thought block 9 was kind of folky until I added the bird. I'm wondering if the original stitcher used the bird to fill in a blank spot. I really enjoyed the ease of block 10 after the last few. Also, in block 10, I just used one stem per cherry. Having two didn't make any sense to me.
