Last block completed for the Stitch-a-long!

I was lucky enough to have a lovely day at home on Saturday. I probably should have been wrapping gifts or baking but decided to start December's block and kept going! Here is the last block.
I also got excited and ended up piecing the blocks together. I am pleased with it even if quite a few of the little squares are a little wonky. Thanks so much to Chooky and to all the Stitch-a-long girls for encouraging me to keep going.
I have already bought the lovely book, Tis the Season by Natalie Bird,  for next year's Stitch-a-long and just had to do one of the stitcheries. Here it is made into a little cushion. I also had time to stitch up this bonbon pattern by Anni Downs. The stitchery was done last year for last Christmas.
 I have also been having fun stitching and making some more of these delightful bag decorations by Anni Downs. Here are two more and one ready to sew up.
