Block number/name: D-10 “Battlefield”
Date completed: July 4, 2008
Number of pieces: 42
Notes on block: This block looked a little scary, but it came together pretty well. I think B-6 was much more difficult. But it did take a looong time to put together. I spent about 30 or 40 minutes working on it Friday afternoon as the boy napped. But the bulk of it was done on Friday evening as I watched The Other Boleyn Girl (meh… the book was infinitely better) and episodes 4, 5, and 6 of the Showtime series, The Tudors (much more fun!)—about 6 hours of television there. (I know, I know… but I was sewing too!) Altogether, nearly 7 hours of stitching time. For this little 5” block. Sometimes I really wonder what I’m doing, handsewing all of these blocks. On the other hand, they do help keep my creative juices flowing and happy. So it’s worth it.
