My summertime challenge blocks….

almost up to date!!  According to my calendar I should have 26 blocks done as of today.  I have 21 done and 5 almost completed…so I figure by midnight tonight they will be done.  It’s funny though each day that I thought I was caught up and would take a picture to share…poof it was another day and there I was one behind.  So last week I was going to be so smart and get ahead by 4 days and…poof I was behind by 3 days.  So, before it’s tomorrow and I’m behind again here is a shot of the finished blocks on the wall:

And now a shot of the 5 “almost done” blocks attached to my machine next to the bowl that is my inspiration for the block colors!

I just love this little bowl that Beth gave me…I didn’t want to put anything in it because then you wouldn’t see the pretty design.  I couldn’t just leave it out on the table unprotected from cat paws!!  So I have it under the acrylic extension table where I can admire it…and pick out just the right colors for my blocks!!

By August 31 I should have 73 blocks…I better get going!

I hope you’re enjoying your summer and having fun with blocks…

Love the blocks and love the bowl! I'm not up to date with mine, but not so far behind that I can't catch up.
