all good things...

....must come to an end.
two weeks of holiday bliss have come to their inevitable end. Batteries are recharged and ready to take on tomorrow!
The sewing time has been wonderful and a few more blocks have been added to the pile of Caswell Blocks.
this block was a real test of patience and skills. After sweating over the little saw teeth on the leaves I had to add the centre vein which seems to have caused some puckering. It will do for now though it may get some tweaking later on.

 this is the block I currently have under construction.... Quite happy with the bird, just need to find the right fabric for the eye....

Two weeks have just flown so back to normal programming from now on. Wonder how miss Maisie will cope without the company. She has enjoyed having some extra people time.

Hope you all have a great week!
cheers
Marina
