Here is the quilt I made for the Breast Cancer Auction which was held at my in-law's church yesterday. They raised just under $10,000.00 dollars and their goal was $5000.00. It was so much fun and I was so pleased to be able to contribute a little. My MIL won the quilt and I couldn't be happier!The pattern is called "Snowball Quilt". It is the first quilt I have made since finishing the craft room. The picture below is a close-up where you can sort of see the quilting.

Craig was in the kitchen this morning and happened to look outside and saw our raccoon. We have never seen him during the day, he usually only destroys the pond at night, that is why the plywood is over the pond. He is getting pretty bold, which makes us afraid, raccoons are pretty mean, he may be cute, but looks are deceiving. Today he just came out for a drink and a quick bath and then he went back up into the ivy so we are thinking that is where he lives. I think its time for an electric fence.
