Thanks to everyone who chimed in about my first RLD block disaster. It was helpful to have friends pinpoint what went wrong with it and what to avoid. Thank you! I decided to throw that crazy block into the scrap pile and I am not looking back.

I am making this post brief today- my parents are flying into Denver as I write this and there is a lot to do in preparation for their visit. I am so excited! Linking up with WIP Wednesday.
