I realise one of my Irish Chain blocks had a (non deliberate) mistake in it and although I have spares this is the one I want so I'll change it. Meanwhile after three attempts I've got the bird I want - green on a light background and have started to piece the top. I am facing problems here and there because of miscut fabric or not enough fabric but I am pleased. It's busy but not so much of a messy mish mash as I'd feared. Vases of flowers still to do.
