Four Patches and Visitors

I didn't seem to get as far today on my little quilt for the doll quilt swap as I had planned, but I am pleased with the results. I made many (25+) little 2" four-patches out of Civil War Repros (my favorite!). There is an alternate block to be made, but even though I searched through the boxes many times, I could not find a ruler I needed. Of course, this is pure laziness, because there is an alternate way to make the blocks, but I kept searching for the ruler anyway! I made more than enough four-patches because I want to make myself a quilt also. The last time I participated in a doll quilt swap I regretted not making one to keep.

We had four deer come and visit us this afternoon in the backyard. A couple were grazing, but one was lazily lying down and enjoying the temps in the 50's. The photos include the deer, four-patches and my little corner of the den.
