Some progress

Thank you all for you advice about the presents. I have been having a play with some and they are okay, though quite large. It's funny, I drew several ideas for how to piece the bows, tried them, made these ones, and it only now as I look at the picture that I realise there was a much easier way. I should have pieced the ties on the bows by making one square with the ribbons through it and cutting it into a half square triangle that I could add to corner of the background square. Lucky this is all about learning :o)

I love your colors, your trees, and your presents! Isn't this fun? While learning we can still use our blocks because none of them is really a "mistake."

The colors are gorgeous. your presents are fab. I love the bows - even if they weren't the easiest way to make them, they came out marvelous. I don't quite follow your description of how you'd make them the next time. If you make another one, could you take pics and do a mini-tutorial? would love to learn from you.

Well done! The problem with more complicated blocks is that they can grow too big, but I think your presents turned out great. Love the bows.
