Another Morrell block

My latest finish is this peacock block. I think my stitches are getting neater now.

I have a new "best friend"!!! Its a fine needle threader!! I have started sewing with a very fine needle with a tiny eye. They are great to sew with, but a real effort to thread. I have discovered my eyesight isn't what it used to be. I'm off for an eye test next week!

Thank you to everyone who has come to visit my blog and thank you to all the new visitors who have left comments. :)

This is the first jonquil to appear in my garden this year. Its hardly the middle of July and jonquils are flowering already. The perfume is devine!


  1. Another lovely block Miriam. Since the BOM has brodery perse, does the shop send you the fabric to cut the pieces from? I wonder how they will handle this issue when they come out with the book. A book that I think I will HAVE to purchase LOL.
