Here is the Crazy Eights top set together. Once you can stop yourself from rearranging the blocks, it sets together fast.
And my visitor was back today. She (I'm thinking she's a she) grazed around the bottom of the spruce tree for quite a while. Then Lynnie saw her from the door and started barking. The deer here are so used to us that she looked up and then slowly meandered away.
I'm going to go hand quilt for a while. I'm really excited at how this piece is turning out.
P.S. Check out The Quilting Professor blog (link on side bar) about her charity quilts. It's truly an AWWW moment today.
