Confidence

For my 15 minutes this afternoon I plucked up the courage to slash a wonky star block that did not meet the criteria for Block Lotto. There was not enough contrast of dark on light and it looked rather boring. I inserted the navy strips and then had to use another 15 minutes to add the border. Its much more interesting now. Thanks for the confidence to do this that I have gained from watching this site.
