It might have been a little TOO late. I got as far as sewing the rows together and noticed there was something off.
Yep, that blasted pinwheel was spinning the wrong way! And of course, the way I had put it together meant that the whole thing had to be unpicked. But, as you can see from the top pic, I managed to get it right in the morning.
I liked this block so much that I choose it for the blocks I will be receiving from my We Bee With It bee members. I asked for white blocks with pink buntings, just like the tutorial HERE. I think it will make a darling quilt for Olivia who adores pink everything.
The house is coming along. I am still not completely unpacked and it has been a couple of weeks since we moved in. The kids are wanting constant entertainment, so I've only been doing a couple of boxes a day. We are also installing those organized closets in their rooms, so many of their boxes are waiting for that to happen before I even open a box to unpack.
Aside from the closets, there is quite a lot of work to be done around here. We bought an older home that had had some of its maintenance deferred. So it feel like every other day I have one contractor or another coming to either fix something or give me a quote to fix things. On Friday last, I had six different contractors at the house for various things. On the agenda for this week: a new water heater and bids for some flooring that needs to be replaced. Nonstop fun around here!
We are enjoying being "in the country". While I do miss the ocean air and view, I do not miss having ten other families within a stones throw of our door. Nor do I miss the sound of sirens at all hours since we lived within a block of a major street leading to the hospital. It is not exactly quiet here. Our neighbors below us on the hill have various animals, so we hear the rooster crow in the morning, the sheep bleating a little later, and the occasional turkey gobble! Luckily, they are just far enough away to be a welcoming sound of morning and not a jarring alarm clock. We also have a bunny problem. There is rarely an evening I don't drive in where there are at least five bunnies on our lawn nibbling away. As, I have big plans for a year round vegetable garden, I have mixed feeling about seeing their little cotton tails.
I'm sure I will be sharing more about our adventures in weeks to come. Meanwhile, what blocks have you working on this week? I would love to see. Link up your fabulous blocks. You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off! This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.
1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage. Flickr and Instagram 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!
