Suzanne, it seems you had a lovely vacation, good for you, you deserved it.Tthese blocks are fabulous, I love them.If you ever decide to organize a sashiko workshop, I'll be the first one to sign up.
Your Japanese blocks are beautiful! I hope you'll share some more close-ups of the applique and the sashiko!
