Mission Accomplished?

I finally got my act together and finished quilting the second of nine quilts-for-hire. This one is set "row by row."

Quilt made by Beverly Meyer
quilted by Suzanne Kistler 2009

Here's a close-up of some of the feathers. Not too bad... :)

My second project last night was an immediate success. Now what? My research (and friends) tell me that these guys harbor disease and fleas. I do hope that Animal Control will respond to my call by relocating him.

We've been in the same house for 16 years, and this month marks only the second time, EVER, that I've seen an opossum on the property. And apparently he came with his entire family, because this one is smaller and cleaner than the one I saw last week, and my son tells me that the one he saw two days ago was "bigger than Malcolm, Mom." Which means that the one he saw was at least 15 pounds...and this one can't be more than 7 or 8. yikes!!

Smaller Sasquatches???? You might have a theme going here, Suzanne.

Thanks for making the effort to write and photograph your blog. When we readers want to sit at the computer and read about someone else's life, it's always fun to look at. I know we don't comment as often as we should, but we enjoy it! Take care. Brenda
