200 knitted blocks - #1 of 200

We had the day off today and needed cheering up so off we headed in to town, despite the fact it's Payday this week and we are broke! I bought a new book in the hope of finding some enthusiasm for a big project. It's 200 knitted blocks by Jan Eaton:

Pictured underneath is my 1st square, or part thereof, named 'Plain leaf':

I chose this one as it looked unusual and was really pleased with my progress. I was thinking how clever it all was, making a 3D object out of a flat length of wool. Then Jomp's ruined it by snorting "What IS that meant to be??" All he could see was something that looked really rude!! What do you think?

Oh my. Now you've pointed it out, yes, I do see the rude possibilities of that pattern, especially in pink! However, I've actually got a blanket made (not by me) of squares of that pattern sewn together so the leaves meet at the stems, and pieced together it doesn't look naughty at all.
