After all the hand stitching to finish my Swoon quilt last week, I was eager to get back to working on Life Is Beautiful blocks again. It was a long time since I worked on this block, and the iron-on transfer had faded so much I couldn't see it well enough to complete the stitching. So I traced over parts of the pattern by hand, which is slightly different from parts of the iron-on pattern as you can see in places. Oh well.

Here is the finished block... it's not my favourite design or saying, but it's one more block ready to be appliqued to a base 4 patch block. I'm trying not to be annoyed that my circles are not very circular!
So just for today, let's all try to "sew less, slowly"! Try to focus on actually enjoying your hobby and feeling more relaxed with each stitch you take, and not worrying about whether circles turn out to be round or not! Try not to make too much progress while you are enjoying all the benefits of the relaxation you are bringing to your life!
