Happy to be Scrappy

Happy to be Scrappy

This week I have been working on the blocks that will go with my words.

4" Blocks
These blocks will all finish at 4".  So far I have between 10 and 20 of each block made.  The most labor intensive blocks are the stars.  I have the most of them because they've been my leader/enders while I've been working on the words.  The second block down on the left is the only one of those.  I wasn't quite sure I wanted to make more.  But looking at this picture I think it will work out just fine.  It will add good scrappy color.  I have a couple more block patterns in mind but haven't had the time to get started on them yet.

These are the only two words I've done this week.  I've just spent most of my time on the little blocks.  One of these days I have to figure out what size I want to end up with and how to get the rows to that size.  Putting together one row is easy.  Making the rest of them that length - not so simple. The piecing of the blocks is the easy part.

Here's another picture of the rest of the words that are done.  Just to keep it all on the same page.  It doesn't however, all fit on the same wall anymore.  A few more words and a lot more little blocks and I'll be ready to start setting it all together.  That should read - tearing my hair out.

Speaking of hair.  Why don't people who cut hair check the haircut anymore.  I may have just got the worst haircut I've ever had.  And by the time I try to get both sides the same length it really will be a mess.  I should go back and make her straighten it out but the last thing I need is for it to be cut any shorter by a mad stylist.  This too shall grow back out.  Thank goodness.

Have a great rest of your day!
