" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

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 Sunday...to you.

  2. Such happy, scrappy, cheerful blocks!
