Some stitching and crochet

I have been stitching a bit these last few weeks. Hurrah....I have finally fused a centre block for the My Town quilt that was in the Homespun years ago. I have decided to make the centre the same size as the other blocks so my quilt (when it ever gets finished) will be smaller than the original.
 I have appliqued and stitched block 2 of the Yoko Saito Mystery quilt. I love working with these Japanese fabrics. I just have to do the patchwork on the lower edge.
 A bit of canvas work was fun to do when we went away a few weeks ago. This is the lovely scissor fob that Fiona designed for our retreat.
 I have also been having some fun crocheting these flowers with some very cheap thread I bought in the Japanese 100 yen shop when we were away. Wish I had bought more balls!
