Finished the Quilt Blocks

Well I finally finished the Quilt blocks for my online swap.  I need to go and get some pics of them so i can post them on the site.  I finished them up today all 12 of them. 

We are getting ready to start another block theme and this one is Fall Leaves. I have a great pattern we can used but I am not able to find it at this minute.  I just seen it not to long ago but my room is still not unpacked, and the things that are, well they just get moved around. 

We have a new addition to the Farm His name is Casper well for now till I think of a new name for him. 
 He is a white Arabian horse that was from a rescue in another county.  He was part of a neglect situation.  This person had other horses do not remember how many right now that were not being taken care of at all. In fact some were so skinny they were starving, and some well lets just say did not make it on his property.  They were all siezed by the SPCA.  We were asked if we could take casper in and teach him to trust again and we agreed.  I have had him about 5 days now and he has come along way.  You still cannot go right up to him and put your hands near his face or even touch him.  But when you are able to get him and get the line lead on him and lead him around and gently talk to him, you then can slowly put your hand on his face to give him a nice pat, and on his sides.  He will come to you on his terms. When i go out to the pasture to check on the other horses and animals i just ignore him and let him come to me. So far its wrking.
  I put him on the lead today and walked him around the property, and did some figure 8's with him, did great with that.

I only wrk with him in short sessions threw out the day.  Once i was done with that i came in the house and cooled off, cleaned up the house just a bit and finished my quilt blocks. well off to get dinner done and get some pics of the quilt blocks and upload some pics to share
