After time staying in the city now I am home again the inclination to stitch is once more taking control.
Country Path, Block 24, in spite of appearing difficult, was in reality simple. Perhaps the fact that I am using a tiny very sharp needle has something to do with it? This block needs no explaining ... a country path is easily discerned.
Block 25, Cups and Saucers, while looking easy, didn't prove to be. I undid part of this block twice in an effort to match the corners. It looks OK now, though for a while I did wonder if I would need to start from scratch.
As I am endeavouring to keep more or less to the original colour ways I do wonder at the dark colours of Cups and Saucers and came to the conclusion that day-to-day crockery would have been sturdy and drab in colour. Back in the 1920's dishes did not get thrown out once a plate or cup was chipped or broken; dishes lasted a lifetime.
