Quilting the placemats and a sleepy visitor

I am almost finished quilting the placemats. I decided to use the Essex Linen on the back. I hope it isn't too plain, but it's too late now! I didn't take any pictures of the back, but here are some pictures of the front.




Now I just have to pick the binding material. I am thinking this print by cosmo cricket. What do you think???



So, yesterday, while I was inside sewing, my dog started barking like a crazy freak. Now he occasionally barks at the odd dog walking by, but this was crazy barking. So I went outside, and saw this little fellow snuggled in the crook of the tree. Murphy really wanted to eat this raccoon up, not realizing that raccoons can be vicious fellas. I am glad that he was safely up in the tree!



This raccoon slept up there (and it was really high - like 30+ feet high) for the entire day. I can't believe it didn't fall out. He must have really wedged in there.

Hope you have a great day!


  1. I don't think it's too plain at all! I love the stitching around the trees. Great choice for binding.

  2. I love the binding and the trees are so cute!
