Accomplishments with a Rotary Cutter!

Today, I spent some time with a very trusty tool - my rotary cutter! My stash report is going to love me this week! I was able to get all of the pieces cut for my second neighbor's quilt.

I even took the time to cut the diagonal pieces that I need instead of leaving those to do later! Go me!!!

I also got 2 bags cut out for the giveaways. I just need to get to JoAnn's for the webbing and I will be able to whip these bad boys out in no time!

Poor Maxie is having some back issues today. It's no wonder with all the jumping off the bed and running down the stairs that he has been doing. So I gave him his pills and set him up on the floor by the patio door. He had a soft afghan to lay on, 2 of his babies to keep him company and his breakfast just in case.

I had to watch from the top of the stairs to make sure that he settled down for a nap. He finally did after about 10 minutes.

And Maisy was waiting for him at the top of the stairs. Can you see the concern in her eyes? Well, it disappeared the minute she got back on the bed for her nap! lol
