Call out for Guest Hosts - Building Blocks Tuesday

another maui sunset

I have some exciting news!  It looks like we will be moving.  Unfortunately, it is NOT to the gorgeous island of Maui shown above, but it is exciting all the same.  We've been looking for a house for nearly 3 years, and we finally have found something that will suit our needs.  However, it means that I will need to take my usual summer hiatus from blogging a little earlier this year, as I am already at a dead run trying to get everything done that I need to in order to prepare to move, sell this house, get the new one ready, and oh yeah, go on a little vacation!

Now I know what you are all thinking....does the new house have a sewing room?  Well, yes and no.  I probably won't have to have my studio in the dungeon garage any longer, but I will probably be sharing a nice big playroom with my kids.  Even though I am sure to have trouble with them messing with "my stuff", at least I will finally have a room with natural lighting, and the added benefit of being able to keep an eye on them while I sew.

So, with all this excitement, I haven't made any new blocks this week, and I don't even anticipate being able to sew for the next few weeks at all!  What does that mean for Building Blocks Tuesday?  I would like to open it up for anyone who would like to guest post for the next 6 weeks - don't worry, not the entire 6 weeks!  But if you would like to guest host one Tuesday, please let me know!  Otherwise, I will likely just extend the current linky to the end of July so you can add away.

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!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,



  1. I could potentially host a week when I am not posting for my QAL. :)

  2. How exciting Jen - new diggs! CONGRATS!
    My favorite part of moving is when it is done - I'm talking unpacked and DONE.
    Bet you can hardly wait!

  3. My twins are three and don't take naps anymore so I moved my sewing stuff into their playroom. It's the ONLY way I can get any sewing done. And they are surprisingly good about not touching my stuff. Especially once they got over the fascination with my button jar. :)

  4. Congratulations Jen that's great news. I hope it all goes well. I'd be happy to guest blog one or twice if that helps.

  5. Oh congratulations- how exciting! When I shared a "play" room with the girls I found it wasn't them but their friends who played with stuff. I put all my stuff along one wall and hung a curtain rail Behind my chair and when they had friends over I draped fabric lengths over the rail. It worked well xxxx

  6. Congratulations on the new home Jen! Are you still going to be near? It's shameful that we haven't gotten together to sew. I've been buried with a litter of 10 Bernese puppies these past weeks. The last ones go home this weekend. Having recently moved myself, I can empathize with the amount of work you will have going on. Anything I can do to help you? Your girls are welcome to come swim and hang with the pups I have here if you need a break!! Send me a quick email and let me know.....


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

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
