Finished in warm sunshine

Another block! Pieced before I left England and embroidered sitting in the warm Le Gers sunshine.

I used more of the flax embroidery thread bought to blend in with the key fabrics. Its a nightmare to sew with - becomes very flossy after a few pulls through the fabric and is a pain to thread into anything like a decent needle. Probably won't buy it again!

I've just seen an extra block posted on the project website ... that's two extra blocks I've not made so far.   Rainy day sewing, I think.

PS In case you're wondering, and I'm not surprised if you are, the block is a homage to crochet and its a crochet hook on the right!
