5 Outta 6 Ain't Bad

I know. The lyrics are really "2 outta 3 ain't bad", but I thought I might be able to slip one past you guys ;)

As you can see I finished by 5th block last night for the 3x6 Bee! I'm almost done...which is good because I'm slowly creepin' up on the final mailing deadline...yikes! But that's what 3-day weekends are for, right? They're not for celebrating with your family, psht! (I kid). I'll be doing my fair share of both this weekend...sewing and celebrating with the fam...or maybe even both at the same time if my mother-in-law and I decide to take over her dining table and sew while we're all hanging out. I'm sure a fair amount of eating will also be mixed in with everything else. Can't live in New Orleans without doing a lot of celebratory holiday eating...mmm...rubs tummy.

Why do you all allow me to go off on these random tangents? So the point of this narrative is to show you my blocks and praise jenjohnston for picking such awesome colors. I really wanna keep this one. Partially because of the lovely color scheme, and partially because it has little bits of furniture mixed in (all hail Tufted Tweets!)

And below is a lovely photo mosaic of all my blocks so far. Everyone say hi to Louis the Albino Alligator. He's at the Audubon Aquarium downtown. You can't just go down to the corner store and see Louis, only in New Orleans (or Louisville, KY...but just ignore that bit of info), so you should probably drop on by NOLA and pay him a visit. Now that you've been properly introduced, it would be rude not to. And you can't be rude to a gator!

(as you can one ulterior motive on this blog is to get everyone to move to New Orleans...or at least visit...but if you visit, you'll want to they're kinda the same thing ::wink::)

Oh, and by the way...I can't believe all the talent that's floating around out there on the internet! I went through each and every link that you guys left in the Giveaway comments, and I was in shock and awe. I'm not just blowing smoke up your skirts, but I didn't see a single thing that I wouldn't love to have in my home. A.MA.ZING.

And not to play favorites here...but I'm a sucker for a good nerdy cute is this little guy? Mr. Pi Smiley was Tong's favorite project :)

Have a lovely Thursday and may Pi Smiley smile down upon you in your bland work cubicle (or wherever you may be)!


OMG, I love it -- thanks so much! It's exactly what I envisioned when I asked for purple and blue and Tufted Tweets is one of my most favourite fabrics.

love your blocks, and this latest one is no exception. and i seriously thought that louis was a beaver when i first looked at the picture, lol. and thanks for the love for pi smiley. i think i will take your suggestion and take him on a photo shoot on pi day every year, which i'm pretty sure is celebrated by geeks alike all over the world =P

Great blocks! I'm in love with those colors!
