Block from my Feb. Partner

Today I received my block from Ank in the Netherlands who was my February partner.
I was in total ahhh when I opened it up and realized that she hand stitched every stitch on the block.
She sent me some wonderful extras also.
I haven't hand stitched blocks in a long time and don't know if I could even go back to it since I have been so spoiled with my sewing machine.  The only hand stitching I do now is the quilting.
Thank you so much Ank for taking the time to put so much energy into doing this block.

Oh it's beautiful!
I myself have been blessed with being a swap partner with Ank & yes, have a hand-stitched block!
They are a treasure for sure!
