Progress...

First off, Happy Easter to everyone!  I hope you spent the day with those special to you but even more important - thinking on the reason we celebrate it.  Christ has conquered death and provided a way for us to join Him in heaven.  Hallelujah!!!

I made some more progress on the Day and Night quilt.  I finished cutting out all of the separate units...


There are 48 in each pile.  I also completed one of each type of sample block.  Each block consists of 8 units and will go into it's own quilt.

12.5" Day and Night Block

5.5" Mini Star Block (after trimming)

I noticed last night that the points on this block didn't quite meet up in the middle.  I've made myself wait before fixing it to see if I still had a problem with it in the morning.  I do!  So I'm going to take it apart and realign it.

Spider Web Block

After I assembled the Spider Web block I went back and read the directions (go figure!).  I need a special Kaleidoscope ruler to cut down the units into perfect triangles before piecing them together.  It went together just fine, but do you notice how each triangle is slanted a bit in one direction?  I have the ruler at home so I'll have to wait to work on this one until I return.

As for my pet sitting duties, everything's going fine.  Nicky hurt her back leg running yesterday morning, but it's a reoccurring injury and just needs rest.  She's being smart about it and spent all yesterday laying in her bed.



As for the other dogs, they've been wanting in and out and in and out and in and out and...  You get the picture.  It'd be much simpler if there was a revolving door here, but I suppose it's a bit of exercise for me.

On that note, I'll leave off with a picture of Abby eating breakfast...



Until later...

P.S.  Happy Birthday Gracie!!!

There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:18 (MSG)
