Diane Kunert writes: I just completed the mystery block (#73) and I think he's great! I was an art teacher for 24 years (taught K - 12) and was an Art History Instructor at the college level for a few years.....and I can't tell you how great it is to see the connection between my passion for Art History and QUILTING!!! I placed a 1.5" black and gold border around him using a fabric called "Byzantium Scroll" (#662) by The Henley Studio and I think he looks great. I'm not sure how I want to quilt him yet.
Sisyphus was punished for his chronic deceitful behavior by being perpetually compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch the boulder roll back down the hill. He was condemned to repeat this act for eternity. Some scholars believe this story is an allegory for lost causes...or the vain struggle of mankind's pursuit for ultimate knowledge. There are many other theories concerning Sisyphus but those are my two favorite!
[Thanks for including this Diane!--Linda]

but my email wasn't cooperating.
As always, always a pleasure! These are so fun!
