Stitched beast made during Jude's original "Patchwork Beasts" class (for those not familiar you can check it out here). It was washed a few weeks ago and it shrunk a bit more. I like how the stitches have stretched out. A little mending might be in order though.
We have a raccoon prowling the garden. A couple weeks ago there was a close call with Lola. She escaped with a few scratches; we were very lucky. She isn't allowed to roam the garden in the dark anymore. She whines and I tell her, "The raccoon could be out there. It will eat you if it catches you."
The raccoon prints are on the side of the chicken coop. They are on the roof top as well. I visualize the raccoon sitting on the roof of the chicken run, peering in at the chickens through their window.
I am glad that they are not very trusting chickens.
