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!
Happy Monday, All. It occurs to me that last week – I was almost completely delinquent about staying in touch with the progress of how we’re doing with the launch of our new Serendipity Woods Shop. As I begin this week, I promise to do that a little more specifically in my next post, but I also want to start with giving you the skinny on Superman, whom I’ve mentioned a number of times here at my CLH blog.
As far as the business goes, some things have been slower in progression, some things have been crazy fast! In all of it, though, the best part has been working with Superman (my husband, who works from home, in his office across the foyer from my studio, and doesn’t think he measures up to Superman status…pish). The thing is, he’s a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades. He knows at least a little bit about everything, so sometimes he’s this guy:
He’s also this guy:
He’s the original inventor of the ‘Selfie-with-a-friend’:
Lastly, he’s this guy:
So, yes – I need to update you on how we are progressing with the launch of our New Serendipity Woods Shop (and I will do that next). However, I wouldn’t be doing all this without Superman, so it made good sense to appropriately introduce him to you first. He’s my business partner, my best pal, and the smartest guy I know.
