Orange you glad I didn't say "Banana" - Building Blocks Tuesday

One of the few knock knock jokes I remember from childhood is:

"Knock, knock?"
"Who's there?"
"Banana"
"Banana who?"
"Knock, knock"
"Who's there?"
"Banana"
"Banana Who?"
"Knock, knock?"
"Who's there?"
"Banana"
"Banana Who?"
"Knock, knock?"
"Who's there?"
"Orange?"
"Orange Who?"
"Orange you glad I didn't say Banana?"

I think I remember it because it was so annoying to keep saying Banana as many times as the other person would continue.

Simply Solids May

I may have mentioned more than once that orange isn't exactly my favorite color.  So, when I opened Chelsie's package and instructions for this month's Simply Solids Bee, I was a little apprehensive.  But once I got going, the block and even the color, started to grow on me.  I rather like the results, and I am eager to see her finished project.

This block is called mod mosaic and you can find the instructions here at Elizabeth Hartman's blog called Oh Fransson.

So what have you been working on this week?  I want to know!

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!


Quilter in the Closet

Rules:

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!


Thanks for reading!

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
