    I am so excited! We were even able to make the whole thing with things we already had. He had the wood that made the frame, I had the fabric, and we used thumb tacks to secure it to the wood. It's filling up fast!!!

    I think I could use one of those. I use the floor and I'm getting too old for all that crawling around. So when is he available?

    very nice !!! I am sure you will get lots of use from the design wall. I have a huge sheet of insulating foam in my living room..waiting for my DH to attach it to my sewing room wall. I am to old to be crawling on the floor also!

    Don't tempt him - we have a week off and are not sure what to do - he might like a trip out to Maine! :)

    I'ts funny - when it came time for dinner we decided to pick something up. I usually do the picking up. Recently we are doing more give and take. I cook - he does the dishes, things like that. Well today I said, if you call it in, I will go pick it up. He looked at me and said with his little boy cutie voice "but I made you a design wall". So, I called dinner in and picked it up :)

    That looks great! It makes your blocks look like pieces of art hanging on the wall! I love it.

    Here it is - pretty full already. Not quite tall enough as the last row is missing - but I have to say I love it. Sometimes I think I like the idea of having things more than I actually like using them but in this case I will get a lot of use from it.

    Don't look too close and the blocks. They all still have to be squared up. Too bad I don't have my cutting table yet ;)

    Very nice design wall. I never had a professional one like yours but in my old house I had some wall space in my sewing room so I taped a piece of flannel about 72" x 84" to the wall & it worked great. Now I don't have the wall space but maybe I can put up a smaller one.
