I feel like a dog with a big ol' bone after doing the block this week. For the past three days I have been gnawing and gnawing on that bone and I'm not really sure it is done yet but I'm ready to let another dog have a try at it!
The general consensus on the Flickr site is that the blog this week was challenging. So many decisions needed to be made before any fabric was cut. At first I wanted to make the breeches floral to show that this was a feminine issue. But then I thought I might like the challenge of using a striped fabric - huh! After cutting several pieces incorrectly I then moved onto thinking that spots would be just fine.
So I made this one on Saturday:
A comment I got via email on Sunday "I cannot believe that you are
considering making another of yesterday's blocks after spending so much
time on that one. Maybe you could give it a few more days rest to get a
fresh perspective on the darn thing before deciding whether to tackle it
again; at that point you might realize what you created yesterday
is really OK".
Do feel free to let me know which block you prefer! Advice like the quote above is always worthy of consideration.
