Some Projects Just Go On and On,and On...

Ever find yourself wondering how something so small could ever take so long? Yep, I do too. Take this wool Monthly Mini quilt I started months ago (please don't ask me when. I blogged about it but I am hesitant to search and find out how long it's really been "in progress").
Today I thought I had finally finished the blocks and was ready to set them on the background. Well, two things happened. First, I couldn't find the pattern (I put it in a "safe" place so I wouldn't lose it, don't laugh at me!), and second, well, you tell me what's wrong with my blocks... can you tell me what's wrong with my blocks??? It's the Monthly Mini that wont end! LOL!
PS. My blocks aren't as bright as they appear, that's just a bad pic. Click on the link to the old post about them to take a closer look at some of the blocks. Better pic to follow once I finally finish this; hopefully before I'm on Social Security! HAHAHA

A few are upside down or backwards . the 3 posies really stand out but I still like it. I start a mini block over 3 yrs ago and still have noy finished it

other then a few being mirror image or upside down from the original pix.........but that's different, not "wrong". It's beautiful!!! I've looked at your monthly blocks frequently and wondered if I should start such a thing! I think after Christmas I will!! It is going to be an heirloom! Beautiful work!!

You know what? There's nothing wrong with your blocks AT ALL! So you're a rebel with block layout! That is soooo totally not a bad thing. This is gorgeous.

Well, I think your blocks look great and I am sorry that I had to laugh about the putting the pattern in a 'safe' place thing. Been there, done that! LOL

I have that "safe place" problem too! And I live in an itty bitty apartment (with two children and a hubby whos worse than the two combined) so where do I lose these things? I don't have space to lose them AND I clean every day!

And I thought I was slow, lol.
It is almost there, so I know you will finish it, you did such a beautiful job on it.

I love these little gems -- there is nothing wrong with them they are unique! As for putting things away in a "safe" place - you crack me up -- my "safe" place is packed with stuff like that - I hope to find them all someday, it will be like Christmas! LOL!
