  1. Ooh did you make the dress Zara? Would love to see the whole frock. Good to see another Block fan, we are addicted, especially Roboboy who has watched every season since he was five. mel x

  2. Lucy Violet had that Meakin "Wattle" in a platter - she used to serve her roasts from it. We inherited it, but there must have been a little crack somewhere, water got in, and it broke in two.
    I am totally sucked in by The Block and will be sad when its finished.
    I love your frock (did you make it?)
    What's a sunchoke? (artichoke/sunflower?)
