I finished up the arc part of the Lexington blocks today.  

I didn't count them but I hope there's at least 49 sets. 

I gave Bentley some catnip, he was content.

Well, I finished up the center parts of the blocks for my Lexington quilt.  So, I moved on to piecing the arcs.

Not even half of them...

You'd think that on such a beautiful pre-Spring day I'd could find something to do outside.  But, no, I ended up spending a couple of hours after lunch up in the studio sewing.
I must qualify that by saying that I spent several hours working in the yard yesterday, and I filled up the yard waste bin.  So, there's nowhere to put anymore weeds and the yard is looking pretty good.  Besides, I'm getting too old, I need a day to rest up after all that hard work.
I went for a nice walk this morning, so I didn't have any reason to keep me out of the studio.  Here are some pictures I took while out walking - what a beautiful day!

Blake Island with the Olympic Mountains in the background.

I actually worked on my Lexington quilt.  I made a bunch of center parts.  Still a long way to go.  I probably only have about five more center parts, then I can start on the arches and corners.  

Here are some of the center parts I made today:

And as a reminder, here's a few of the blocks:

I've finally gotten my Year of the Horse prints and colophon together, addressed and stamped.  It's off to the post office to mail them.  I'm going to have to stand in line for the stamps for the international letters, eleven of them.
Sorry I took so long, but I'm sure you all know about how life gets in the way of the important stuff like this.  I had the best of intentions to get them in the mail before January 31st, New Year's Day.   Next year!

Here they come!
