Block 23. Death Penalty
April 15, 2011 I wrote to my CWDQuilt journal
I wasn't in the mood for sewing tonight - at all.And seeing the pattern of next CWD didn't make me feel any better. I was really tired - and still I am - while sewing the block. And I was all the time scared... would it be a dissaster... there are narrow stripes again... I foundation pieced almost whole the block, despite those flying geeses with narrow stripes.
Afterall the result is more than "success;)" when I'm considering my mojo.
Hopefully I'll be more spirited tomorrow!!!
