Crime and Four more blocks

We had an early awakening yesterday morning.  My cell phone rang before 5am, it was our security company telling me that we had an intruder on our property.  Apparently a neighbour had phoned them.  Within 2 minutes there were at least two cars from the security company as well as two or three  police vans here.  All trouped through the house and searched our large and dark back garden, but no sign of anyone and we didn't see any signs of attempted break-in.  All left, and about an hour later I heard someone walking across the roof of our carport going towards the street, we think someone had been hiding on top of our roof out of sight, probably scaled the wall using the burglar bars on the kitchen window as a ladder!

Later in the day our neighbour spoke to P and said their dogs had been barking and they saw someone on the wall between our properties and called in.

Getting quote tomorrow to have electronic alarm beams installed in back garden.

And in spite of being tired last evening did manage to stitch up four more JT2 blocks.  I was feeling to lazy to print out the paper-base for the first one below, decided to stitch it without base...hmmm... wasn't any quicker in the end as all the pieces cut were oversized for paper-base, and had to re-trim every piece carefully.  The colours are all purples, not blue!
