A Few More Blocks...

I really didn't plan on posting tonight because I just didn't feel like I had that much progress to show. My plans were to get up early and load one on the frame, but like I said my frame is upstairs in the new house but we don't have power in the house yet. I always just run a power cord upstairs to plug in my machine but I don't have A/C out there! It is just too hot up there right now. I was up there for a bit and I got sick to my stomach it was just too hot. So back in here I came where I have A/C.

Today was filled with housework and a little bit of sewing in here. I ended up making 10 more blocks today. I am now up to 20 of these Courthouse Steps. I'm sure I have a few more of them somewhere and they are probably upstairs so they will just have to stay there until it cools down. I'm not sure of the design yet. I may just piece them like this or I did see online where they had alternated the blocks. I do like these blocks but right now I'm not as happy with them as I was when I was working on my log cabin blocks. I loved them! Then again maybe I am just cranky from this heat. LOL!

That's all for now, hopefully tomorrow I will have more to show.

You must be cranky, I know I would be if I had the weather you are. Those blocks are great.

I love your blocks! Hot weather is no fun at all!

It's the heat--definitely the heat. Nothing wrong with those blocks!!

Your blocks are looking good. Courthouse step blocks look good set with a secondary block (any design probably). The "legs" of the courthouse steps block produce a secondary design. Just an idea.

I can't imagine going upstairs with no A/C! Hopefully it will cool down soon.
