When I first saw this block I made a note to paper piece it, and promptly moved on to another block. After making a few of my own templates for other blocks, I decided to have a go at making a template for this block. Glad I did. This block has 8 y-seams, but they don't cause a problem when hand sewing.

My thoughts on the letter - "A Mother's Smile"
by A Mother, 1938.
The letter was a reminder to mums everywhere, to smile, to laugh each day - no matter what one is going through - one needs to make the effort to smile and laugh.
I start most days with a smile, and it does make one feel more positive.
Laughter, well that does take a little more effort, especially when things are going wrong.
I will try to find something to laugh about each day, not a fake laugh, a real laugh because something is funny. (May need to watch 'The Project' each day LOL)
What will you do?
