A little progress...

I managed to finish my curved blocks without too much crying... still a few puckers and distortion but to me it doesn't matter. This is a trial layout... will probably play a little then decide that's enough and just sew them together. While I'm pondering the layout I'm cutting some 2.5inch strips to make a piano key border in an assortment of greens and black/whites.
So far the 'home retreat' has been ok. Still more distractions than a real retreat, but a very welcome break nonetheless. Still two more days before I go back to work!!
