I have made a decision that might make it easier for me to keep up my enthusiasm for the Friday Block Party. You might remember that in the beginning I talked about BOMs. I never do them, because I hate working with deadlines and feeling like I have to keep up. So it was a real surprise to me that I had taken on this weekly block party when monthly blocks drive me crazy.
Well, after the first 20 weeks, I have learned something about the blocks and myself. If I keep trying to do them every week, I'll go nuts. So... I have decided only to make the blocks that are 12-inchers, or that are very easy to adapt into 12 inches. That'll give me a break when the current block is an 8-inch, 10-inch, etc... and with an occasional break, I think I'll be able to keep doing this for a while.
Therefore, I am declaring myself all caught up! I didn't make block #20 (this week's block) and I'm not going to, because it's not a 12-incher. I'm happy with what I decided to do!
I'm posting a random picture, just so this post isn't all boring words. (I'm a visual learner. Are you?)
