  1. Where is the written pattern for the ‘Simple delicacy granny square’ green and white square? I love it but I can’t seem to find it. I’m sort of a beginner and I love this one. Thank you for your help.

    1. Are the instructions fo rthe postage Stamp Block actually the ones for the green & white Simple Delicacy granny square? I can’t tell from the on-line photo if there is 1 or 2 spaces left open inbetween the clusters
