Norway gathering block

As you have seen earlier I have had guests from an internet group I am a member of.
We have stitched 4 days for a few hours on each others blocks like a mini RR.
The block were prepared by ourselves. 30 cm., 12 inch square.
On this block is work from Anne, Helinä , Margreet and me.
The past few days I have worked on it, I have changed a few tings and added beads , more seam treatments, sre and a button-trail.
I will add a border later, don't have time to do that now.
I think it is a very sunny, happy block and it represents the nice week we have had together.
If you like to see it large, you can click on the photo.
