More blocks, more fun

I decided to be lazy and not cut any more green strips to make sets to match with the pink/red ones. I cut all of the strip sets and made 6 more pink/red and green blocks to total 74 and the 12 all pink/red blocks. I have a lot of little trimmings from the strip sets so I pieced 2 of these to be used on journal covers.
I have a bunch of these little pencil boxes that W*Mart had on sale for 50 cents last year. I have one that is almost full of squares made of triangles. They are left overs from various projects.

I played with a couple layouts and then put them away again. Simple pleasures!
Can you believe Oct. is almost half over? Where does the time go?

A little optical illusion there -- depending on where you focus your eyes, those joined triangle squares make pinwheels or pieced squares in squares. Very cool!

Don't you just love using up the scraps? The colors are gorgeous! I have to say that I am a little sad that winter is on its way.

whenever I cannot quilt, I turn to your website and live vicariously. As always, your work is totally satisfying!

You have a "wandaful" eye for color! I love that you use everything... scraps neatly tucked away for a later date. Very nice:-)

I love the colours in the second photograph.

I can see what Cheri means - an optical illusion indeed.

I can't believe that October is half over, and I certainly can't believe it's SLEETING here in CT today.

Lots' of disbelief.

Also, those little squares are adorable!

Pink/red plus green... you know I will check every day to see final design that you create with them.

Your journal covers always "jump right off the page."

Little squares ~ I can see why you had fun designing with them.

I even hear my grandchildren, comment about how time goes by so fast. So it is not just affecting our age bracket.

I am ALL for simple pleasures ... thanks for sharing yours with us!!

p.s. I'm still lost somewhere in early September ... I can look at the calendar and "know" that it is mid-October but it just won't "stick" ... but then I leave work to drive home and it is nearly dark ... so then I am reminded big-time that it is "fall" ...

I used triangles for two table mats, which I love. I called them, "Honey, We are Having Leftovers!" and "Honey, We are Having Leftovers Again!" Beads in the centers of the pinwheels would look neat!

I am LOVING the purple and lime green together! Your blog always provides something to tickle our mind...

Actually, I don't think anyone could ever use the word "lazy" to describe you....so, I'm a bit shocked to see that you use it to describe yourself! You are far from lazy....You just took an artistic twist in preparing your next piece of art.

All beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Wanda,
It's always fun to see what you have been dabbling with each day.
Good idea about the pencil box; I bet quite a few half square triangles could fit in there, ready for your next inspiration!
