Failure happens. Right? I  know because it happened to me yesterday.  A perfect opportunity to practice patience and detachment. 🙂

I was trying to foundation piece a rather difficult block.

It was a star block for Caroline, my BLOCK SWAP ADVENTURE partner. (Caroline if you’re reading don’t panic I DO have a plan B)

I asked my friend Jan for her advice and she told me it could be done but had to be made in four separate pieces and then sewn together. Well after a bit of angst (read practising more patience and detachment) I managed to make two of the said sections. Sewing them together? Hmmm… required even more patience and detachment. The result? failure… Oh well I am now thoroughly detached, enough even to put this in the scrap bag and rethink the whole project.
