I know it has been a while but I have been busy. I had some grands visiting for almost a complete week while we waited for this little guy to make his appearance into the world. This is our eighth grand, grandson number six and the forth child of my youngest daughter. He was born on February 27th. I have been using my phone to take pictures with recently when I am not at home and am finding it hard to get them downloaded where I need for editing so you will have to excuse all the background stuff. This was taken at the hospital at two days old.Moogly. As I mentioned in an earlier post I am making two of each block and will then have two Christmas presents at the end of the year.
Here are blocks 4 & 5 in the pink color scheme:
And the purple color scheme:
Now that I have 10 blocks altogether, I decided I better get busy blocking them. I did pick up some blocking pins the last time I was in the city but I did not pick up anything to pin the blocks to until they dried. So I went scrounging and found these foam puzzle pieces that the grands do not play with anymore. Put a few together and then flipped them over to the non-textured side.
I then drew a twelve inch square on the foam pieces with a permanent marker and gave it a little drying time.
Next step is to lightly wet the block and pin to the foam pieces along the lines that I drew. I will leave it overnight until it dries and move on to the next block. So in 10 days I should have this step done and will make sure from now on I block each piece as I finish it.
I was happy to find a way to recycle these foam puzzle pieces into a useful project.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Blessings from our home in the woods.
