I almost finished the second block last night and then this morning I woke up early with nausea and hot flashes and crocheting kept my mind off of my stomach. My blocks came out a little small so I added an extra row of double crochet. After the last set of blocks I was so worried about running out of yarn, but not only did I do an extra row, I ended up with 2 grams of yarn left over. Go figure. If I ever do these blocks again I think I will add extra stitches to rounds 6 and 7. When I was blocking the rose felt crowded and the block just didn't seem to want lay flat and square.
