Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

You know I had to try it !

Cutting scraps all week, and checking on blogs in-between-time, you know I just had to give the Japanese x and + block a try   And one block tells you nothing; so, in the tradition of Lay's potato chips, I couldn't make just one !

So, here's my start.   The blocks should measure 10 inches when finished.   I wanted to try a bigger block, but I had all these 2 1/2 inch pieces that would be perfect for triangle-squares, and for the middle + and squares !

The middle of the + uses a 6 1/2 inch piece, but I tried piecing it when I didn't have a piece that long, and it turned out just fine.  That fact will give me a lot more leeway with the scraps that I have.

But this will all wait until Monday.  I hope you all visit the church of your choice tomorrow,  and find a way to bless someone this Sunday, as you, yourselves are blessed !


  1. This reminds me of something British for some reason?? btw..I used to dream about an extra floor of antiques in our attic....nice dream and the detail of things was amazing. Your dream of extra rooms to fill...made me remember. Happy you.

  2. Such happy, scrappy, cheerful blocks!
