Frost 25, a true mystery

Today is planned as a "me" day after yesterday's painting fiasco. I started by finishing up Clue #3 of Frost 25, a QOV mystery venturing away from reds, whites, and blues. All corners double-sewn, trimmed and pressed.

Clue #4 HSTs were pieced, and the center strips were strip-pieced. Then came time to piece the final block. Despite DOUBLE-CHECKING.....I STILL ended up piecing the block incorrectly! After chain-piecing and pressing the top/center rows together, I checked the pattern (pictured). My thought....."aw poop!" BUT, rather than ripping out the 12 blocks, I just left 'em, shrugged and told myself this will be a REAL mystery now!!!

So, off to print the final clue (#5). **crossing fingers**

CHICK UPDATE: We are up to eleven chicks ;0)

Glad I'm not the only one that does things like that. Waiting in great anticipation of what your mystery will look like
