Hornbook Bestiary progress

Here's my latest progress on the Hornbook Bestiary.  I finished "F is for Fox" and forgot to post it here.

Progress as of 7/5/13

Progress as of 7/13/13
I'm continuing with my practice of making "deals" with my self on this one.  I have to complete the current block before I let myself move onto the next one.  It seems to be working.  Each block is like a mini finish!

Here's a closer look at the F is for Fox block.  Next up is G is for Goose.  I can't wait to see how it will add to the overall look of the sampler!
More next time,

What a lovely little hornbook. Wouldn't this be nice for a child's room. They could learn the alphabet and also animals.

Thanks, all. It really is taking dicipline to work on this but it's so worth it when I see each block completed.

This is so pretty! I have the chart in my stash...some day...I like your idea of disciplining yourself to finish one block before going on to the next.
