So Stinkin' Cute!!! And some quilts too...



This little guy gave me a visit a couple of weeks ago.  Isn't he cute!?!?  I sat at the computer and watched him waddle through the yard and stop right in front of the huge window and proceed to dig a hole in the yard.  He was completely occupied digging as I stood and watched him.  Why is it they look so cute that you just want to cuddle with them? 


He stayed with it for a while and then decided to move on.  Good thing, those holes are hard on the lawn mower.  Speaking of wild animals, I also caught a quick shot of this big guy in the yard.....


Sorry for the blur, I've usually got about 10 seconds from the time I see these critters to find the camera and snap the shot.  I'm usually running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to figure out where the last place I had the camera was.  By the time I've located it the Kodak moment has passed.    And speaking of chickens....look at what Judi in Vt had me work on for her...



I'm callin' this one Funky Chickens!!  Another fun quilt from Judi!  But the wildlife at my house gets better!  I had a couple of elephants!!  Yep, here's proof....




I bet you didn't believe me!  These adorable little guys came from Annette in NH.  They were baby shower gifts and simply wonderful!!  Who else could I have seen???  How about these little guys....


This was another adorable little quilt that I had the pleasure to work on.  All of these little guys made a fabulous quilt, the colors were perfect! Sue in NY did a great job with the little owls.  I also had a fun little guy on the machine, everyone loves.....



Good thing Sponge Bob brought his friends.  This wonderful quilt was done by Aunt Mil.  Here's what Lisa wrote when I asked about the quilt:  "The sponge bob quilt is for Aunt Mil's great-great nephew who is in 1st grade! We don't have many boys in our family, and she spoils ALL of the boys!! Xander's father, (Xander is the one who will receive the quilt) asked for a quilt for his son! I believe Mil will be 85 in Nov! She is the reason Janice and I began quilting, something she has done for the majority of my life, and I will be 45 this year! She loves to embroider and make the little animals! Now, all of her nieces and nephews wants quilts made by her!!!! We are in competition of who has the most!!"   Sounds like Aunt Mil has her work cut out for her!  Lisa sent me a super hero......


Spiderman!!!  See the cool webs that I put on the quilt?  It was so much fun and I've seen the pictures of the little guy who got this one!  He is a cutie and I know he adores this wonderful quilt.I have been busy having a blast with all of these fabulous quilts!  Don't forget you can click on the pictures for a closer look and as always I've posted more pictures at my other blog:


But wait!  I still have more so you'll have to come back and see what else has come my way.  The fabrics and the designs have been great!  I also have a fun little table topper to tell you about! 

The boys are healing quickly, I'm hoping the orange cast comes off tomorrow. Kid in sling is starting to move about and come back to life.  I'm sitting on the kid with the hand injury, the hand is the most used and most abused part of your body and we can't afford to not let it heal completely before using it again. 

Thanks for checking on me,
have a wonderful and productive day,
hugs,
joanne

love to hear what you've got to say......

Yes, why do those little guys have to be so stinkin' cute? It looks like you have a great view from that window. Imagine what you would see if you had a night vision camera.

The quilts are all wonderful. I love the quilted owls, but elephants have always been a love of mine.
