A Day With the Map!

I gave some quality time to The Olde World Map yesterday, and took regular photos so you can see the updates!

I’m going to spend more time on this today, so will take regular photos throughout the day again.

Switching Projects

Well I have decided to put away the anniversary sampler until the next UFO. Here is where I have got up to:

This is starting to look good, but to be honest, it is a bit boring!
