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.

Baby Quilts #s 14 and 15

This baby quilt pattern I got from Moda Bake Shop. I started it last year and then when the directions weren't correct I put it away. Only took about 30 minutes to figure out the correct measurements and get the top finished.

This is the 2nd quilt that I have made from Moda Bake Shop and both have had incorrect cutting directions.

When I went to clean my cutting table I came across the fabric bits left over from this quilt (yep, haven't clean it off in over 4 months). Instead of putting it away I just decided to make a baby version of the quilt.
Big and little Hexie quilts.

Bill can't imagine anyone wanting a red, white and black quilt for their baby - I can, it is so cute!

I am behind by three quilts and hope to get caught up and hopefully ahead in the next few weeks.

Both these quilts will be going to RMH.

Thanks, Michelle, for the opportunity to show our baby quilts.
