I got right to work on my postage stamp block.
All the while, that imaginary cake stand block was sitting nearby.
"You know," I said to myself, "if I were a smart woman, I would tuck all those little pieces into a little plastic bag and have a kit ready to go next year when I actually start making blocks for this RSC2021 project."
"But hey, it wouldn't do any harm to just sew those little HSTs together before I do that."
And despite the fact that I was diligently sewing together little squares for the Projects I'm Actually Working On, I decided that I might as well sew that bigger HST together too, while I was at it. You know, before putting all those parts away.
And then maybe just sew those little pairs of triangles together so I wouldn't get them confused later when I would take the kit out of its bag and do the real assembly. You know, next year.
At this point things get a little hazy. I'm almost certain that cobbler's elves were involved, because the next time I looked I saw this:
I started muttering to myself. "Squares. Sewing squares. Just squares."
And it seems to have worked because I finally had this together.
Though that doesn't explain this:
But maybe it's just as well that I made this second sample block, because I can't find the first one I made. I know I joked about hiding it from myself, just for my own protection, but apparently I did just that.
Or maybe those cobbler's elves took it...
