Aug Dear Jane blocks

The August Dear Jane blocks. Bottom right was a challenge but after I got my head in the right space I got it. I was going to leave off the bit that makes it look like there is a square on a square but as the song goes" with a pencil and a pad, I figured it out" Am really loving the way this is going.

 Bought this kit at my local quilt shop as some of the sewing group were making them. Hmm how to make it so that the edges all meet??

 As you can see I did it. Lots of glue and a bit of glove stitch and it's finished.

Side on with the buttons. Filled with choccies on Christmas day, that may be my only concession to festivities. I don't go all out at Christmas I'm afraid.

The obsession grows. I have knitted 7 more hats, one pair of socks/ slippers ( green at the bottom) to give to NOTYQ, and the squares are for Rosalie to give to her craft group. This is a small group but the person running it wants to make blankets for elderly people. With only six or so in the group lots of squares will need to be knitted by each one so I thought I'd use up the scraps from the hats. These are so easy to do that I just sit at night doing them. Need to do at least 3 more pairs of the socks and will then get back to the squares. I can never say I am bored!
