Cream blocks joined in pairs

Here are the first eight cream-on-cream blocks which I've joined down the centre in pairs so that I could embroider over the joining seam. Apart from the gold basket which has been stitched over with flowers, I have unpicked all the metal charms and replaced them with gold embroidery. Now that I have to wait two weeks for my wrist to heal, I can at least continue unpicking more gold metal charms before I am allowed to start stitching again.  Anyway, lots of people have commented that my cream blocks have been a long time coming out of hiding so here are the first four pairs.
