I finally got my mojo back and dived right back into the sewing room. Lucky the sewing machine hadn't rusted up in protest.
I got the sixth panel joined to the Trailing Vines at last. It's been hard to take photos though because the sewing room really is a cave and to top it off we've had dark wet weather so these will have to do.
