I got the applique for C-2, Streak of Lightning, basted just this morning. This block makes three prepared "vacation" appliques. I think I will continue with D-2, Mouse in a Mirror, which is paper-piecing combined with inset seams, and E-2, Merry May, which is applique on a simple paper-pieced ground. (Note to self: you are NOT afraid of inset seams, you're not, you're not, you're not!)
After E-2 I will definitely start working on clue 4 of Grand Illusion.
By the way, Larry has started working on the second Singer 127 restoration. This one is going to be pearl white, and the paint job already looks AWESOME! I have to start working on creating some stencils; we going the airbrush route instead of decals this time.
