I can't stop!

I have to admit that I was a little unsure about this idea. I have never participated in any bee and when Victoria posted about it, I  waited until the last minute. And of course, when the list was almost full, I did not want to miss out on the fun. So I signed on for the unknown!
My fears were...
What if  I don't make them on time?  
What if I don't like the idea of the block and I am forced to make it?
But, as I started working on Victoria's blocks, soon I realized that it can be not only done on time but you end up making more... I started thinking, Ooo.... Ooo... I can make some more for myself too. May be I will make some extra for her from next batch of scraps. If I make more, I don't want them all looking as if they came out of the same load of scraps! 
So in couple of.. may be more 15 minutes' play I overcame all my fears and had fun. 



Victoria, thanks for adding a little spice to my sewing !
Can't wait for the next round and to see what you do with these blocks!

I know! It is really addictive, I was thinking about going in there in a few minutes and making some more blocks! I love it.

glen: funny, I thought, what a silly idea, but I am really liking this!
