Oh boy!

Have you ever had that 'Why did I bother' day?



I did today. I wanted to finish block 2 of 'Breast of Friends' and I really shouldn't have tried. I am hopeless at maths and my apologies to my grade 10 maths teacher when I scoffed at her as she told me that I needed to know how to add up fractions because one day I might need them. Well today I needed to add up and nothing worked. I was sure I wasn't that dumb..........................HA!!! I am............lol With the help of Rose , a panic call to Pauline and an email to Homespun................................the block finally worked. Thanks to Roses good maths everything added up......................lol I took a deep breath and finished it. What should have taken 30mins to complete took me 2hrs. Oh well, here it is........


And here is block 1 with the borders.


After this I am going to stick to sewing clothes, dolls and bags................No more quilts........................hmmmm.

Enjoy your evening

Jules

I am really not good at maths myself, and often struggle with it.
Your blocks look great though by the way! Even after all that effort!
