Inspired!

I have been inspired by Maree posting on Wednesday 24th August.  I love her table runner, and I want one too.  But I am not going to start a table runner as I must finish my 'Tis the Season' quilt.
I am making very good progress.  I am on target to finish the quilt by the end of this month.
My dear husband has booked a short break in France and we sail on this Thursday's ferry, so I thought I would get out my 'Gardener's Journal' blocks and pack them to complete whilst sitting on the ferry and travelling down to the South West of France by car.   I  have spent the whole day looking for the blocks, book and threads!  I have turned the house upside down and now very certain that those naughty fairies have been for a visit to my house again.  Eventually I found my book but not the blocks.  I usually organise all the items for a project and place them in a box all together.  I cannot start again as all the threads are with the lost blocks. What am I to do?
Does anyone fancy a trip to Devon to help me with my naughty fairies?

Hope you find it!
Happy Stitching, Susie

I am sure most of us in Australia would love to come over for a visit - but maybe we wont be there in time! How lovely to be able to just pop over to Europe. Good Luck with your hunt - it is very frustrating when you lose stuff like that.
