I was doing so well with my Vintage Revival Blocks, I was pleased with the palette and the blocks looked like they would make a great sampler.
Then I hit the foundation pieced blocks. After hours of cutting, sewing, ripping out tiny stitches and taping shredded paper, I produced two blocks.
Then I started block 9. After much frustration and some swearing, I threw it the trash can. In that moment I had an epiphany, I’m done, over it, paper piecing and I have broken up for good. Roz Chast said it well.
