Well I guess I don't need strings, as much as string blocks. I went to try and organize some of my sewing room today (since I was making the kids clean and all I figured it just seemed fair, I did also. It started with the great intent to clean up some of the mess. I saw all the strings laying around, some of which I bought in a bag of scraps for 3 bucks and some are scraps from projects I have done. I made 4 initially. Then I found a few more strings that looked good and made another 11. So I showed Tanya my nice pile of string blocks (these are 6 1/2 squares) and she looks over and says they look too red. Hum, I like red? Maybe I should have used more variety. I ask her what I should have done and then she just looks over again and tells me she really does not like random. So what do I do now, she hates them? Oh I know.
Yep you guessed it, I just made more blocks. My feelings is you can't make every one happy all of the time. Over the years I have learned Tanya does not like all my wise choices (or even my unwise ones). I will keep using up all those silly scraps up that I have until I run out of them. Overall the layout plan I am going for will be something like this.
This is something I whipped up in EQ7. Its 9 x 12 blocks (total of 108 blocks). Seeing as I have around 30 blocks it won't be any time soon. I will from time to time add blocks to my collection. The blocks today that I made ended up in my homeless block box (Yes I have a box with a lot of various blocks in it now). It might take me 6 months to finish this one, but its at least started today and a little of my cleaning is done. Oh and for any one that was wondering, while I was distracted the kids did not clean and the house is still a mess, oh well there is always tomorrow.
I will end with this cute picture of Julia. Tanya was trying to get a cute picture of Julia and out of all of her toys it was her shoe she chose to play with.
