Progress is still progress, right? - Building Blocks Tuesday

Holiday Placemats WIP

I've made a little progress on my holiday placemats.  Not much, I admit, but progress is progress, right?  I now need to work on what I am going to do to make them rectangular, by adding a flatware section.  Fingers crossed I can get these done and mostly quilted by the end of the week.  I doubt I will have much time once the kiddos get out of school.

In other news, our re-pipe passed inspection yesterday.  We still have holes everywhere, but patching those will start tomorrow, as will our bathroom remodel.  I keep telling myself that it is really not a big deal having all this work go on through the holiday, but it is distracting.  Ah well, it will be nice when it is finished!  I'm off to Lowe's, again...

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 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!



  1. Progress is progress, everything done counts in my opinion. Nothing done here so not joining you yet. Next week promise !

  2. I have that fabric! Progress is progress. Good luck with the remodel. (shiver)

  3. The mats look fab, the remodel? I feel for you, mind you husband is an odd job man - he does other people's bathrooms and kitchens, but I don't think I've had a finished one in 28 years of living here!!!!

  4. Those are pretty! I really wanted to make placemats for this year, but I don't see it happening now (I got a yucky cold) unless the girls help me. Maybe they will. :D

  5. Those blocks for the placemats look lovely, hope you get a chance to work on them soon.

  6. I really like your Building Blocks Tuesday block. Great idea.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! I may not always respond, but I DO read them...always.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
