    April might be able to fix it or you'll need to ask a moderator (via a PM to either/both of them).

    Generally it's best to just use the "boardname" or their first name & last name initial if at all possible.

    Okie Dokie... I made 2 for savannahrandons out of her special puzzle fabric. They are available to peek at on my thread link below...message 65 or somewhere along there if you want to check them out.

    I made the first one and had plenty of fabric left so I whipped up the 2nd one. Dad actually likes the 2nd one better he says, but hey, what does he know . I call the 2nd one "a flock divided".

    Glad to hear from you ctmhjenn...we thought you'd fell off the earth.

    Welcome to tlambing also, jump in the waters fine. Glad to know you got some f8's to work with and yours will be leaving soon.

    It's ok no one is going to hurt you I like to be anonymous too and the quiltingboard forums DO show up in google searches that's why. We all know who each other is obviously but we just don't want names showing up all over cyberspace. It'll get fixed, just send a message to LovingIzabella or PatriceJ if you haven't already. Glad to hear you're still with us

    Critters and varmits are slow right now in Possum Trot...guess because it's canning season and they know they could be the winter menu main course entree .


    Elisabrat...could you check "your" block out on my link (it was the first one mailed) and see if you have received it. I'm worried you didn't get it yet.

    So raccoon stories.. Last summer I kept hearing scratching in my ceiling, and after watching "Infested!" I thought it was raccoons.. but it wasn't all the time and it seemed so little at the time.. so then I was like.. nah maybe it's squirrels, maybe they're getting in some hole over by where my roof had half the shingles ripped off. My brother had repaired it but I wasn't sure that there wasn't a hole over there somewhere. Plus I had heard squirrels having little squirrel races around the roof.

    As time progressed I would only here these thudding noises and loud tromping and all sorts of weird things at night, when I was home alone, on a friday or saturday, watching the hotness that is Zak on Ghost Adventures. God. I swear I even told my BF I was pretty certain I had ghosts.. He said eh I doubt they're mean ghosts cause they haven't done anything but thud for all this time.

    One night, during ghost adventures, I heard thudding overhead and all of a sudden I hear a loud RRRRIIPPPPPP RRRIPPPPP... I was like.. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKK KKKKKKKKKKKK. So I got a broom.. and I smacked the wall at the spot that I was hearing the Ripping noises. And it stopped.

    A few days later I started hearing little chortling noises in my ceiling over my downstairs stairwell, and over my oven in my kitchen. I was like ok I definitely have a critter. So I looked up what critters it could be and found out those noises are racoon noises. I was like oh crap.

    So I called wildlife specialist, they come out and I'm pretty sure the guy was spending more time trying to eye-flirt with me that he couldn't find the raccoon hole. So I found it for him. There was a piece of soffit that they had yanked down but you had to lie on your back and shove your head in and look at the top and you could see a spot that wasnt' completely boarded up that had a few hairs sticking to it to see where they were coming from. Anyways, at first he didn't believe I had raccoons. But after he found the hole, we set about climbing trees around the house (neighbor trees, I don't have any trees) and chopping off limbs. Then he goes up and screws traps down to the roof and puts little piles of dog food in there.

    I was so excited I went up at night after I heard the familiar middle of the night Ghost Thud overhead, and stared out my front window.. Sure enough, a giant fluffy raccoon was pacing around the roof trying to figure out how to get down. We didn't catch her that night, but the next night we did, which of course was on a weekend so I had to call the guy cause he wasn't planning to come until the next monday. So he comes during the day to try to get her and take her off to the woods somewhere to release her. All the ghetto neighbors are watching.. He's like.. geez she's big. And he wires part of the door shut and he goes to pick her up and the minute he picks up the cage, she manages to shift the cage just enough that she could push the door open, jumps out, runs up and over my roof and jumps off the back and disappears.

    ugh. So we knew she had a baby in there, so we had to put a cut branch up against the house again so she could get back. Once I heard the thud saying she was back, I took it down again. It was a few days later before we caught anything else. She found some new way to get up and down or maybe she just went hungry I don't know. I would watch her pace around the cages not wanting to go in. But one morning she went out and the baby followed her, he was sooooo cute. I was watching him through the window.. she was trying to get him out, and he was sitting there rocking on his haunches, holding his little feeties and crying the most pitiful cry. So the wildlife guy came and took him away. We kept traps up for 2 more weeks but mommy never got caught again and I didn't hear her in my ceiling anymore. So we put wire over the opening and boarded it back up. No more raccoons. Which is good because this spring, a big chunk of my ceiling fell in after a rain storm, right in the area that was part of the raccoony path to beddy bye time, and the area I kept hearing RRRRIIPPPPP.

    And that's my raccoon story.
