It was a slow week for busting stash!  However, I did finish 10 blocks to send to Alycia's Block Drive.  Do you remember DeeDee's stash report last week?  She showed a photo of 26 blocks that she made for Alycia's Block Drive--and I thought "I should do that!"  So, I made 10--it was so easy and will be so fruitful.  The hardest part was finding red/white/blue fabric.  So, thank you, DeeDee, for the nudge--and thank you, Alycia, for coordinating so many QOVs!  I'll get them in the mail this week.

I resumed working on my second pineapple top (black & yellow)--I'm going to cut the size to a 3X3 setting--and hope I'll have enough yellow fabric.  (I think I will have just enough.)  And as soon as it is done, I'll have to work on my red Xmas basket quilt!


Our mountain goats are down near the highway again--they are so pretty and fun to watch.  And our resident deer herd come to visit several times each day and night.  They have found the bird seed that has been knocked to the ground below the feeders.  Usually there are 5 or 6--and yes, Smokey, our Lhasa, hears them and wants to go out to protect "his" yard from the invaders.  They have gotten over the shock of seeing the furball streaking out to find them--now, they just stand very still or walk down the ravine a short ways and watch him!  He's on an electronic collar and won't go much beyond the perimeter of the yard.

Have a good week!


  1. Your QOV blocks are perfect. We saw mountain goats in Alaska and they are pretty amazing animals. After 8 years our small herd of deer still run from our small dogs, even though there is a fence separating them. I bet you get some great sightings of Hawks and eagles. I love watching the big birds glide through the sky.

  2. Really cute blocks! And they look like they'd be so very easy :*) Good jub!

  3. Wow! No fabric added yet this year. And I really like those blocks. The white sets the colour off, just right.
