Bradford and Watling BOM Port and Starboard Block 4 Although this package arrived in early December, Christmas and New Year delayed my review on this block but I’ve finally been able to complete it. Once again, when I opened the package, the pieces for Block 4 were neatly presented and labelled in packets.  I took…

Each year I review what I have managed to achieve in the past year, and then I make my New Year Resolutions, and also list the things that I would like to achieve in the coming year. It is around the end of the year that I do this, just to give me more time…

Bradford and Watling’s BOM Flock of HSTs Block 3 With lots of recent family commitments, I wasn’t able to get round to making this block until a couple of weeks after I received it but as before, I was eager to complete it to add to the two previous blocks. As with earlier blocks, the…
