    this went to the perfectionist 8 yr old grandson, to let him try and learn that mistakes are okay, you just learn to fix them. And i learned how to post pictures this weekend with the daughters help. hallaluya

    LQS had a block a month club. i purchased one block of squares and l paper piecing pattarn each month. took me about a yr and half at that rate to get it done. and i learned to paper piece. loved it. but occasionally, i cut the pieces too small, and then had to piece them together, cause you have to remember to pin the matarial on the back of the paper so you can see the lines to stitch on. and the wrong side of the material is facing the back side of the paper. LOL you really can't do two or 3 things at the same time, like us women always try to do. you know.

    the pink and blue star, 2nd from the bottom on the left was suppose to have alternating colors. one point had 2 of the same colors together. i pointed that out to him, and told him ,'good enough is okay sometimes. you can't obsess over getting everything perfect. of course we all want to do the best we can, but perfect sometimes is just too much trouble." " yes 100% right is wonderful, and you can aim towards that, but to make yourself really, really anxi's over perfection is not good"
    that was just one of several mistakes, but i fixed most of them, or they weren't noticiable, unless pointed out.
