May's BOM

Finished with May's block!   The block is part of a BOM designed by Cindy at Quilt Doodle Doodles, which you can read about here.

May's Block
As you can see, I still have a little "problem" with some triangles which are refusing to leave the design wall unless I stitch them together. 
Meanwhile, I've been doing a bit of applique on the Roseville, which is aggravating my shoulder.  Nothing very exciting to show yet, but I'm making some slow progress on two of the panels--trying to get it all glue basted, and I've finished stitching both the trees (from hell) on the bottom panel. Hooray for that!    
The trees aren't that bad, but they did take me about 2 years from start to finish--although I can't honestly say I worked on them much during that time period. :)  I'm also not thrilled with the fabric I chose for the tree on the left (you can see above the cow)  Guess I should have figured out sooner that it's too light.  Oh well--I'm not going to redo it!  
Happy Stitching,
