Block 58 - Tazzie

I didn't think I'd have the time to put this block together today, but I did, and I'm thrilled! This is my final Nearly Insane block - #58!

How exciting to have completed all the blocks, it has been hard going at times, but utterly worth it. I have one little thing I'd like to finally do, and that is to alter Block 80. It's a little crookedy, and if I'm going to fix it, now is the time to do it - I don't want it to bug me for all eternity.

I'm so pumped to start putting that zig zag border together. Bring it on!

(Note to self: do not compare my number of blocks finished to Tazzie's.)

Fantastic Tara. Even though I'm loving being in Brisbane, I can't wait to get back home to the Nearly Insane stitching. You are so inspiring!!
