Vignette stitching

This week is racing by and I feel like I haven't had much time to read all your inspiring blogs!  Tonight we have my dear father-in-law's birthday dinner so perhaps after that I can have a blog catch-up!
In the weekend I completed the shoo-fly blocks and started the stitching of the Vignette block 4, so far I have finished the bird stitchery ...

The orchid posy in the top photo is for my father-in-law and while I was choosing that for him I found a cute heart for me ...
I think it will look perfect hanging beside my cross stitch one day!
I hope to 'see' you this evening, happy stitching, Wendy
