|Beautiful wooden blocks.|
However, the blocks proved to be too dense to easily cut with the scroll saw or drill into, and the 1" thickness really made them inappropriate for inclusion in my quilts, and after they sat around in their box beneath my scroll saw quite literally collecting dust for a year and a half, I realized I had to let them move on and find a better home.
I posted a description with photo on Freecycle, and was thrilled to see how many people had an interest in hundreds of brightly colored wooden blocks! A young woman came by and got them, and now her husband who is a teacher will use them in his classroom to demonstrate concepts about volume and area. So really they're right back where they belong!
I guess not Everything ends up as art...
...but I did end up holding onto a little handful of them, just in case!
