Thanks to all for the kind posts. They really helped.
Still feeling sorry for myself, I walked up to the quilt store and to the pharmacy to get my meds. I needed paper piecing paper as I discovered regular paper just doesn't work that well with lots of pieces.
Is paper piecing considered cheating?
I only decided to go this route as my flying geese blocks weren't coming out right. Does anyone else's block bow on the bottom side when doing them? I feel like I've gone through so much fabric as I need more.
I picked up the paper and made the mistake of looking at the patterns. These called out my name and begged to come home:
I'll post a picture of the paper pieced block when I get it done.
