Blocks 40 and 41

On a roll!  To be honest, these two blocks were quick to construct.

Block 40, Friendship block was illustrated in a muted blue; in a search through my stash, [at this stage I confess to enjoying the search through the sash for suitable fabrics] I found a brighter blue than anticipated, but my eyes kept being drawn back to it ... so ... it chose itself!
Block 41, bringing me into the forties, a milestone reached with only 70 left to go, with only two fabrics in it's construction took only minutes to stitch. 
The letter pertaining to block 41 gives a real insight to the times of the 1920's.

"There will be long weeks of hard work and hours of discouragement but there will also be many days when relaxation will come with a knowledge of work well done ..."

The years have rolled on, but perhaps that basic truth is still relevant?

I love the chosen colours. Infact, I have one of the fabrics myself. THey look fantastic. Even better when they are quick to piece.
