Stash Report #18

Mary-Kay is the person I sent the apple core blocks to.

The baby squirrels are venturing out of their nests. They are so cute. I can sit for hours and watch their antics and their mommas trying to teach them to jump from tree to tree. One baby was a bit nervous and her momma had to push her off the limb (only 4 ft high), luckily she caught onto the branch below. The same baby refused to jump to her momma who was on another tree. The baby just ran down the tree, across the ground and up the tree to her momma, and I swear that I saw the momma pat her baby on the back saying "good job baby squirrel"! And yes, I do feed the squirrels.

Bill went up to see the house this week, things are moving right along. The well has been drilled, tresses on the main house, the garage is ready for the floor to be poured. We picked out the brick, the front door, the color for the metal roof, the interior doors and the garage doors. My long arm will go in the bonus room over the garage.
I finished 2 baby quilts this week - read about them here......

Made this QOV from Mollie's pattern - Double 4 Patch......
