Geese, floors, and minis - Building Blocks Tuesday

I'm late!

for Anneliese

Sorry about that everyone.  There has been a lot going on here at the house the last few days that has required my attention (and often my back muscles).

This week, I'm sharing these colorful geese blocks that Anneliese requested in my Lazy Bums Flying Geese Swap.  I pieced them together while working on Deb's NY Beauty Circle of Geese blocks.  I try to chain piece my paper piecing when I can, but in order to keep Deb's blocks organized, I only did one quarter of the circle at time.  I used Anneliese's blocks as little place holders between, and since they have far fewer pieces in the blocks, I managed to get them all done.

Speaking of the house, I am happy to report that I have floors in my studio!

I have floors!

If it were up to me, I would have had them put in this room first so I could hide out in here and play.  But unfortunately, it had to be one of the last rooms to be completed.   We only have half of 2 rooms left to go, but they can't be finished until Friday.  I am very much looking forward to that time!  Progress on the bathrooms continues slowly as we have had a few setbacks (hey, that's remodeling for ya!).

In the meantime, I've been setting up my studio whenever I get a chance.  Today, I attempted to decorate.

My wall of minis

I didn't expect it to be so hard to put up my minis on the wall.  It is hard!  They are all slightly different sizes and shapes.  I must have read half a dozen "How to make a gallery wall" tutorials and it still didn't really help me.  I don't really feel like I've done a very good job; but, I am ecstatic to have some pretty stuff to look at while I'm in the room.

As you can see, I've got my cutting table all ready to go.  I hope to get a design wall up later this week.   Tomorrow.....I just want to sew and forget all my grown up least while the kids are at school.

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.

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!
