Ain't he cute????

I'm having fun positioning the eyes for each to be looking in different directions :*) These are just such fun, quick little blocks!
And since it's been a month since I showed it, here is my AQUA Soul Searching block once again ....
I'll be sorry to see my favorite color AQUA go, but it's always fun getting a new color from Angela on the first of each month.... wonder what our color will be for April???
One thing I did get to do a lot of while traveling was hand stitching!
I really got behind this month, so I took my Bertie's Year BOM blocks for March and April with me to retreat and sttiched on them while we watched Downton Abbey in the evenings. Can you think of a better way to spend an evening? Me neither!!!! The March block got very little love early in the month, so the poor thing won't get to be displayed at all this year because it will be April before it is completely done. But I did finally get it all stitched with the hand-stitching embellishments, and it is ready to be layered & quilted.
As always, I'm in love with the whimsical nature of these blocks! Here Bertie is up to her curious ways again, making friends with her fellow creatures :*) I wonder if she realizes that cute little bee is not as sweet and harmless as it looks LOL!!!
And I finished the stitching on April's Bertie block too!
Working the embellishments on these eggs was a lot of fun :*)
And I love the bunny ears on Miss Bertie!!!
Each month, the blocks have a "border" stitch that frames the stitchery in the center. This block called for a really fun stitch and I just love the playful look of it in the block - perfect mood for Spring!!!

Come on over and see what all the fuss is about :*)
