But. I didn't want to scrap this project entirely. So, though it completely skipped my radar while making up an initial list of goals for the new year, a couple days ago I dug out the eight completed blocks and set about making the final four. Starting with December, and please excuse the poor quality photos, all taken at night in less than stellar lighting -

SnowballAnd, last but not least, in no particular order on the design wall, ta-da -
Originally I had planned to set these blocks 4 across and 4 down with a large appliqued medallion in the center. Still might do that, though at this point the blocks will be set aside to simmer for awhile. I'm just happy to have the delinquent blocks off my list, even if they weren't actually on it in the first place!
Happy Monday, and may no Y-seams cross your path today.
