My Town - a start

I've just posted over at the My Town BOM Stitch-a-long blog site but decided I may as share here as well :-)
I'm very pleased with myself as I have just finished my first block of the My Town BOM which the Australian Homespun mag is running this year.
The Corner Store designed by Melanie Hurston was my starting point for this project.

I machine-buttonhole stitched it. The stitcheries were through several layers of vlisofix so a sharp needle was needed [:-)] but I did enjoy doing this block.


I'm not sure which block I will start next (I'm quite behind on these!!) - maybe I will just close my eyes and see which one comes to hand first!
happy stitching everyone,
