Peacock Sewing Case

Before we disappeared of to Thailand I started our holiday with a couple of days in London so I could spend the Sunday at CA Wells class for the Peacock sewing case. As I had got the pre-stitching finished I was able to make good progress on the finishing. I also had the good fortune to get to meet Su and Helen there.

I didn't want to take my class things to Thailand so a friend brought them back to Yorkshire for me. We managed to get together yesterday so I was able to get the last bits of finishing done on the case :)
