Ugh. This is the second time I am writing this post. My wonderful witty remarks were vanquished with the mere click of a button. Somehow I managed to create two entries and deleted the completed one instead of the empty post. Double Ugh. I will try to somehow recreate.
I know you may find this hard to believe, but I have not thought about the mystery at all since last Friday. I have been so busy working on gifts and spending time with my sweetie that it just didn't cross my mind. I did wake this morning around 6:00 and realize that the clue was likely up. Did I want to get up? Nope. Back to sleep for awhile. At 7:30 I climb out of bed and go to check on the clue. Twenty-nine four patches! Yes. I could not be happier. I grab some leftover squares and strips and start cutting. In no time -- seriously, by 8:00 I am starting to sew.
I decide to put the "B" units together first and then move on to the "A" units. At one point I count the strips and figure I have enough for about 40 blocks. Oh my, it is time to sew. Once the strips are sewn together I need to make the subcuts. Working with small strip sets is perfect and I am able to do the subcuts with so much variety by moving the pieces about as I cut. It turns out that I have enough of the sets to make 28 "A" units. Not that far off.
Aren't these just oh so sweet. I LOVE four patches. They are perhaps my favorite unit to sew. The are just so cute and easy. AND I can be very accurate at them.
I hope everyone else is having fun with these and enjoying our "break". I think "easy" is behind us now and we have work ahead but I am excited for it.

MY (I am wording it this way because I always make extra units for fun in the back and for variety) piece count thus far: 2, 876 plus 880 in my bonus HST's. Wow -- I'm impressed with what Bonnie let's us do without realizing it. So fun.
