Whew – What a weekend! I’m thrilled to report that among other things, I got to watch my #4 play college lacrosse and I also sewed LOTS. Most importantly, I got a few more blocks ahead of my Be My Neighbor sew along piecing so I don’t fall behind as I did for my LAME-O Block 4 post, when I literally didn’t get my block done in time for the Monday blueprints release. Ack. Nobody likes to be behind the 8 ball like that.
My block turned out like this:
Before you ask – I’m not a fan of it. I sort of got stuck for a while on the fact that roofs are historically certain colors or shades of earthy tones and I’m annoyed that I chose the color Wren which frankly I love – just not up against New Russet Orange, also a perfectly happy Grunge shade. My slightly imperfect diamond shapes are created from Juniper Berry Aqua Blue, which is one of my MOST favorites!
As mentioned, I’m several blocks ahead of this one and can confidently say I’ve gotten over the idea that my roof colors need to be earthy. I learn, by golly…every day I learn 🙂
This week’s BMN block blueprints are below. If you’re following along – I hope you’ll tag me at Instagram! @serendipitywoods, so I can see how your blocks are coming along!
Shall I just cut to the chase here, Dear Blog Followers? It’s Monday at 5:10 PM here in Serendipity Woods and guess who just DID NOT get her Be My Neighbor Block done in time for today’s post? That would be ME…
What I can say is that even though my Block 4 block isn’t finished (Moda’s version is in the upper right corner – the yellow with the red roof), it’s been a productive several days for the shop, about which I’m eager to share – yet I’d rather be quick about getting the Block 4 blueprints into your hands so you can work on yours, while giving myself a little extra time to get my block done so I can then share IT, along with the rest of my Shop news in my next post. The Block 4 Blueprints:
Aside from that – I must beg your forgiveness for this lame-o post, and ask for a reprieve until next time to catch you up. All that said – do feel welcome to tag me in your Block 4 post please! I’d love to see it and perhaps it will inspire me in my block creation!
