Slow but Sure Progress

I've been making steady, if slow progress on piecing the Simply Woven blocks.  I ended up with 24 blocks.  I've been playing with them on the dining room table; I'm trying to end up with a balanced layout.  I'm really not satisfied with either a 4 x 5 or 4 x 6 layouts.  I think I'll make one more block out of scraps; so I'll have a 5 x 5 layout and the quilt to will be about 60" square.

In other news, 6 weeks ago we adopted two dogs.  They needed homes and we needed dogs.  This week we took them to the groomers, and on the way home, Frisco, above, managed to lower the rear window and jump out.  He landed under the car and was run over!  Frisco got up on his own, walked to the sidewalk and waited for Bob.  Bob took him straight to the vets office, and he had surgery this morning.  He's home now and doing great.  He was hurt much less than we imagined, which is a relief.

Here is a photo of both dogs.  Frisco is 7 years old and a large Cocker, we're calling him an American Cocker Spaniel mix.  Ben is only one years old, and 10 pounds.  He's a terrier mix; his coloring is like a Cairn Terrier, but he's much smaller than any Cairn we've ever had.  The dogs get along great, which is great for us.

May your bobbins always be full,
