I meant to get started on the binding for the Scrappy Stars at some point in the day but I didn’t get to it until after I wrote this blog post last night so maybe I will have some updates on it in a day or two. Instead yesterday I spent the morning giving the house a cleaning. Then went to the fitness center to get in some exercise. When I got home I got out the fabric I had put aside for the retro air ships and got to pressing them. While I was pressing I got my new computer out and put on a Craftsy Class to watch while I pressed. I have gotten a Dell lap top and the cover bends all the way over to form a tri-pod type of effect. This makes it easier to view I think – just my opinion.
It is a small laptop as I prefer small for travel. It can also just be put up the normal way.
I got 6 blocks cut out – the circles will be cut and prepped as I get the blocks done deciding on those fabrics last.
For this block I decided on a brown center, which is the color in one of those stacks above.
Nine blocks done – out of how many? Don’t know right now – these blocks are about 10 1/4 right now – odd size I know but there you go. And yes the very bottom block with the white background is smaller than the rest – mistake in cutting – I just laid it out with the rest until I decide what to do with it. I might add a narrow band of the same white fabric all the way around it to make it the proper size or it might be turned into table mat or something. Linking to Gone Stitchin‘.
The red bud trees are beginning to blossom and some of the earliest daffodils are already beginning to die off!! So fast it seems. Other bulbs are growing quickly. Our spring is early – we had a cold night a couple nights ago that got below freezing but I guess it didn’t last enough to do any damage – that was good luck there! these daffodils on the edge of the woods in the front yard are just now looking really pretty. The following photos are taken from the phone.

The azaleas beginning to show their blossoms as well.
And this is my part time dog Max – he lives somewhere in the neighborhood but I haven’t a clue where. When I take my walks around the property he comes running from different directions every time I see him. A very friendly dog wanting some attention. He is very playful and friendly. The other day when Melanie and Aniya were over we were walking around the property (like I have so much – 3 1/2 acres or so) and we started to clap our hands calling for Max and he came running out of nowhere. Where does he live? I don’t know I get the fun of playing with him and someone else feeds him. Living in the country like I do you see dogs all over the place – people do not keep them on leashes and let them run out of their yards – sometimes in the case of Max he is friendly – sometimes they are not so friendly and you have to chase them out of your yard and hope they do not come back.
