TIF Challenge Finished

I have finished my January Crazy Patchwork block in Sharon B's Take it Further challenge.
I am very happy with how it has turned out and I am now looking forward to the February colours.
I did not have to buy anything which is one of my aims to completing this challenge and I will have to admit to not being able to find a few things after my big clean up mainly my special Crazy /Pwk button collection but between now and February I will find them and put them in a safe place.
I have added a few colours in threads that are not in the original colours but it needed a lift and I promise not to tell anyone if you don't.



When I have finished all of the 12 blocks -I am going to make them into a fabric book

This is so pretty Doreen,the fabric book is a great idea. You do know that putting things in a "safe place" is the quickest way to lose them :-)

Looks terrific Doreen, proper crazy patchwork, not like my unproper one. Glad the book sounds like a good idea too.

Really beautiful, Doreen, I love all the little added extras and the edgings are 'to dye for', so many beautiful stitches!
What a great idea to make a fabric book.

Wonderful Doreen - Fantastic what a difference a few very well chosen stitches and embellishments make. I keep rolling back and forth to the 'empty' block (14th Jan) and the 'finished' block. Magical! Val
