I'm In Triangle Hell

I made the mistake of doing all the large triangles first, so now I'm slogging though the 24 little triangles needed for every single block. 

I have been doing a few at a time so that I have blocks moving forward in stages so I can at least see them--and so I don't find myself banging my head on the table (which would of course be cushioned by a pile of triangles)

Of course, I have my sidekick with me....
and has lost a little fur here & there to the rotary cutter, but otherwise 

Yesterday I thought I was getting close to being done, and decided to figure out how many more triangles I needed before I cut out the next strips.  Now, there are SOME points when doing the math is a good idea.  I don't think this was one of them.  After carefully counting the blocks & figuring out how many more I needed, I discovered I still needed one hundred and eighty-six squares, which would need 372 more triangles. 

Oh my.

I think I have met the fabric equivalent of the purple mohair swoopies........heaven help me!
