Yesterday our colony (that's a group of beavers) gathered to help us in rolling logs for our expected guests during the state shop hop.
If woodchucks and beavers aren't your thing maybes skunks are?
A few weeks ago Joe reluctantly took Lacey with on a skunk hunting episode where the were unsuccessful on finding its location. A few days ago the other hunter missed his opportunity on eliminating our skunk friend who enjoys hanging on on the driveway.
The same night as the missed attempt on the skunk Lacey was in the orchard picking up sticks when the two family dogs decided to see if this black and white cat wanted to be their friend. Against a desperate attempt to get them both to safety, Lacey hollered and while the older, wiser dog listened, curiosity got the best of little one and she learned the hard way just how terrible tasting skunk spray is and just how smelly you get with it on you.
After tearing apart the house, Lacey found the proper skunk removal ingredients:
1 qt. hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 c. baking soda, 2 tsp. liquid dish soap and warm water
and most importantly: RUBBER GLOVES and old clothes.
The little dog and Lacey successfully managed to remove most of the odor so she could spend the evening in the house. What a true friend.
The most popular sample that Darci has sewn up seems to be her design of
featuring fun fall fabric with a great center pieced section.
This is a quick quilt, table topper, wall-hanging to sew up especially if you have a great border fabric to show off!!
She also sewed up another "Pinwheel Twist" out of Jovial (BasicGrey for Moda) holiday fabrics. It has been so much fun to see how much this pattern changes with various charm pack collections!!
This is one of our Quilt MN samples featuring the large focal piece of fabric and what seems to be the most favorite piece people talk about: green pine cone fabrics.
