Easy for a change...nice.

I sewed up the colored triangles with the black triangles.

I counted 113 as I was ironing them...

I think I need 116.  Drat.

I cut out almost all of the small triangles, just have the whites left to do.

My method is to cut half square triangles out oversized then trim them down after they are joined together - I find I get more accurate results that way.

I trimmed up half of the larger triangles that I made the other day.  Then it got too hot in the studio.

We (me) thought getting a dog for Jelly would help her to relax when we need to leave her alone.

So, I contacted CA Russell Rescue again, and found a dog that looked a lot like Jelly and made arrangements to adopt him.

They are calling him Spirit (another name I don't like).


Spirit at his foster home.
He is coming up from the LA area, this time it's one person who is making the drive all the way by herself.

Here he is on his first leg to go meet up with the van whose bringing all the dogs north.

Spirit on his first leg of the trip north.

Post Script:  After looking through his paperwork, I see at one point they were calling him Jax.  He answers to that, so his name is now Jax.

Looks like he was turned in as a stray in a town north of Sacramento.  He wasn't neutered when they got him, so that happened right away.  He is approximately 6 years old and semi-housebroken.

Welcome home, Jax!

Here is the main center square, consisting of two half-square triangles, cut and sewn together.  

Back to chain piecing - haven't done this in a while.

35 squares is all I need
