Thursday Update

My title to this post actually makes it sound like a Thursday update is going to be a regular occurrence.  Probably not going to happen.  I usually don't spend much time sewing during the week.  This week has been a little different.  Maybe because I can't sleep and maybe because these blocks are going together so fast and easy that it makes it a little more fun to spend time at the machine.

So here are the new words I've made.

And here they all are together.  I'm running out of room on my wall though.  As you can see I still need quite a few words.  Not a problem.  I have a two page list of possibilities to choose from.  And it seems like I think of more every day.

I still haven't decided for sure how I'm going to sash the rows.  I've cut narrow 1 1/2" strips of gray to put in between them.  It almost makes it look like lines that you would write on.  I'm leaning toward that.

All of the pinks are different.  But I have been using the same background on more than one word.  And I'm running out of background fabric.  I have been working with half yard cuts for more variety and it looks like I'll need a couple more.

Have a great Thursday.
