U-turns on Easy Street
It seemed that what ever I did, half had to be ripped out again! Sew 5 patches together into a row... Sew 2 rows together....oops sewed on the wrong side. Rip out. And so it went.
As much as I thought I was paying close attention, apparently I wasn't. When I finally ripped off a block that I thought was wrong, but was actually just fine, I knew it was time to stop!
But today is a new day, and the 9 B-blocks are done! Here they are. Don't they look great just by themselves? But I'm not going to be tempted to quit here! There are more A-blocks on the schedule for today and then dinner with my High School girlfriends.
Yep, it's nearly 40 years since our graduation, but the 7 of us still try and keep in touch. One has moved out of state, and another isn't available this time, but 5 of us will be getting together. We've tried to connect like this a few times each year, and otherwise it's Christmas Cards, but over the years we've always been there for one another - as divergent as our paths have taken us.
