First block finished..................

I'm really pleased with myself this afternoon, I sat and stitched the last two leaves on after lunch. Just couldn't wait to do it tonight.
I'm hoping that my applique stitch improves with practice, don't look to closely at the stitches, they are OK, but could be a little smaller.
So 1 down, 19 to go!!!!!
