i think i've got it!  or as they say in new england, "light dawns over marblehead" meaning marble head...lol.....have been staring at this work in progress all summer and wondering why it was so problematic for me...but today pulled out the book and fabrics to make more blocks...that's when a red marker at hand proved to be the problem solver...


as you can see, i had marked off the individual blocks with pencil to erase later but wasn't definitive enough to allow me to construct individual blocks with ease....after i did that, it came to me that, duh! all the blocks are exactly alike!  my creative gray cells were overthinking them because of the alternate gray fabrics for the design...well, after that got 2 done lickety split.  and now can go on from here without trepidation...whew! 


anxious to spend time at the machine and get this top done as well.  *** today while channel surfing looking for something to watch suitable for those with IQs over 50, happened on one of those mongrel movie channels advertising a movie with de niro and philip seymour hoffman called "flawless" about a macho ex-cop, now suave man about town, who suffers a debilitating stroke and his drag queen neighbor who gives him singing lessons to relearn speech.  subject matter aside (i prefer lighter entertainment while sewing), watching these 2 A-list actors was mesmerizing.  hoffman was clearly at the top of his craft in this sleeper movie, all the more sad due to his own early demise.  there are drug thugs and stolen money involved as well, but honestly, the performances were first rate.  i was just lucky they weren't running "donovan's reef" for the billionth time...i see it nearly every day in the tv guide.  now back to my own personal "mod" squad......
