I successfully handled the tricky construction bits of the Hoffman, but then when I looked at it, I realized I had to add these additional shapes--too much blank space in the dark blue areas. I had put these shapes on and taken them off several times in the past, but had convinced myself I didn't need them. Wrong. And it would have been SO much easier to do the applique when I had a small piece to maneuver, or even a 30" circle instead of a 36" square. I think the moral of this is, if you think maybe you should do it, do it. This definitely applies to ripping out, and I guess to adding too.
And here are some pieces to be in the Take It Further Challenge, when I get to it. I seem to be able to only work at one thing at a time, partly because of obssessiveness, and partly because the mess from one project takes over the entire work space.
