Tetris Tuesday number 3

Oh I was glad today was Tuesday, that gave me a really good reason to go sew after work. Even if I am exhausted. Worked 14 hours Saturday, Monday and 13 hours today. In the heat, the humidity, and the massive thunderstorms too. I am a stay indoors in the coolness kinda gal. I don't do heat too well. But that is ok, tomorrow is another day, probably a repeat too.

But today..............is Tuesday. Tetris Tuesday that is. What am I goin to do in 3 more weeks when there isn't anymore Tetris to piece???? OH my. Don't think about it. So I had two squares of orange that ran over from the first block that I needed to put in here. So I started there and filled up my chart, not a single open space, WOW!

After I had it all sewn together and went to put it on the board, I realized that there was suppose to be a red square in the bottom right from that block overflowing...............well too bad. I am not ripping out all those stitches and starting over, I will just have to change that red shape, and include them at the bottom of next weeks block instead. It is my quilt after all.

The mud man should be done at the remodel tomorrow or Thursday, he said we can start the sanding party this weekend, so that is what I will be doing, sanding and getting ready to paint and hopefully fly down hill with this remodel and get it on the market and sold ASAP!

Oh and Sit-n-Stitch is at my house this Thursday evening, so all my ladies from the night crew in the quilt guild will be heading this way. Boxes and all. So I will have to do some cleaning up keep tomorrow after work, and I am off on Thursdays still for now, so I will be cleaning and cooking on Thursday. :D

I have gotten quite a few more smiley blocks done, got a Wounded soldier quilt on the frame, need to get it quilted and mailed off. It has been sitting around for two months now, wow, has it really been that long. Time is flying by and I am missing it.

It looks great! I can't believe you filled it so well! Good job! Bummer about that one red square but changing it up would totally be fine.

That's looking great so far! It's so nice to make something for yourself and if it goes wrong you can adapt it to how you want =D

The great thing about this one is that they are not all alike. Sounds like you will work it out just fine.

These tetris blocks are the bomb...I can play that game for hours. If wasn't already swamped and doing 2 doll quilt SAL I would join in. Instead I'll file the idea for later and maybe even print out the weekly tetris pieces. Great idea
