Can you believe that this happy-go-lucky boy could be so terrified of something so silly?
Well, I can, because I did the exact same thing with July's block for the Simply Solids Bee: this beast of a paper-pieced block that was sent to me to complete. The first thing I did when I got my fabric and instructions at the beginning of the month was shove them into my grandmother's hutch, not to be removed until July 26th, exactly 2 days before deadline. For no other reason than the fact that I was hoping it might disappear.
Much to my chagrin, it did not. And so, Friday night, I opened my hutch, very much hoping I would be transported to Narnia instead, to confront my very own beast.
Confront it I did. And after a lengthy battle involving a seam-ripper and many dirty words, a battle that consumed my Friday night AND Saturday afternoon, I seem to have conquered it.
It is not perfect. The size is not quite right. But it's done. And this time that is good enough for me. Perhaps I should have just put my big-girl panties on and confronted this beast when it first showed up in the mail...
