On the Design Door: Happy Blocks

Design Door you say?  Yes, you read that right.  I traded my nice flannel sheet on the wall for some double stick tape and the pantry door.  The kittens kept climbing the flannel and I had to take it down.  Naughty kittens!  I was too excited to wait and share what I've been up to.  I made some brick house blocks last night.  I've been calling them Happy Blocks.  I love their bright chunky colors!!

My daughter thought this was great fun and added the "terrific" sticker (lower left).  Now the only thing that didn't go as planned was the rotation of the blocks.  Again I was up late and my square is supposed to be on the right.  So, counter clockwise, instead of clockwise.  That's ok, minor detail right??  They're going to be sashed with lots of white.  Georgia... did you hear that??  *sashed*  ; )  Oh dear, not the easiest thing for me to do.

Excuse me while I go peel the tape off the door.


  1. sashing is so hard for me! yikes...but it will make these blocks sing! they look gorgeous...i love that your daughter gave you a sticker.

  2. I would love to have a design door! I only have a design floor. :-/
    If only sashing didn't look so good (and it will look great on that one!), then I wouldn't have to keep doing it!!!

  3. love the blocks and all the pretty colors! great job.

  4. I just love this block and had to try it myself. Thank you so much for your tutorial. I will post about it on my 11th of August blog post. :o)
    I hope you are having a great day.
    Sincerely ~ Tricia
