Caught up!

I'm feeling really pleased with myself as I have caught up with the Tozz's Corner Flirting with Flowers BOM!! I can't believe it!! I'm happy with how both of these have turned out and am looking forward to next month's block. I just love the combination of needleturn and stitchery so these really suit me down to the ground...and, so far... I'm using bits and pieces from my stash SO that's another bonus!!
You cant see very well in the photo but when doing the purple flowers block  I couldn't decide whether to use a light purple thread, or dark purple thread for the stitched wavey lines so, for the top pairs of squiggles I used one thread of each!?! In real life it gives a bit of movement, maybe a bit like a variegated thread (but not as consistent!). For the lower waves I just used the darker purple.
