String top Tuesday
The kitties and I made our final decision on the layout of the Heartstring blocks. We kept the star in the center and added rows around it. For the outer border, top, bottom and both sides, I cut the blocks in half. I had no plan when I started these blocks except to use up the strips already cut from the aqua and yellow fabrics. Next time, it may be easier to have an idea of what I want to do before I piece the blocks. All in all, I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It still needs to be pressed, but I was anxious for a picture. I think I'll bind it in purple.
Now that the weather is nice, Jasper and Annie are always trying to sneak outside when they hear the door open in the kitchen. Jim took Jasper out today while he worked in the yard. Before you could blink, he had parked himself in the cherry tree with his eye on a birdhouse.
Last night JJ walked into the bathroom and saw Jasper sitting in the window. JJ thought maybe he would like some fresh air, so he attempted to slide the storm up so the screen would be there. Somehow they stuck together and both went up leaving a gaping hole for Jasper, who wasted no time jumping to the ground outside.
