Another grandchild came to use the sewing machine on Sunday and Tuesday. This wasn’t the 1st time that Jessi has been here to sew/quilt. In fact, way before I started blogging, I wrote about our first Quilting Adventure together. Goodness, she was 5 then, is 17 now. Doesn’t seem like 12 years ago!
Along with pics of grandkid’s shoes, I like to take “back” shots --
Jessi had bought the fleece & a Tshirt with a raccoon on it. Her mom sketched paw prints on the Tshirt and we were able to appliqué the paw prints down on the fleece, also. The boat fabric came from this grandma's stash. The blanket goes to a special friend.
There’s a raccoon on the other corner. There’s a story to this blanket & the appliqués, but it’s not mine to tell …
We have raccoons back in our neighborhood, again. The cold weather had kept them away, but they are back to digging in the flower beds and the mulch and knocking things around. So, my DH traps them & re-locates them. This guy is no longer in our neighborhood --
