Is there a mouse in the house?

My husband puts on a large Showcase tournament for high school athletes to showcase their talents to colleges. I do the Hospitality table (i.e., free food) for all the coaches and our staff of about 60. It's being held this weekend and so I started baking all the brownies yesterday (32 dozen). Well, I went to bed last night with all the pans on the counter and when I got up there was a piece of mail in the middle of one of the pans?? That was odd, so I picked it up and look what I found! What a creative mouse we have!
On a quilty note....here is my Shoo, Plaid Fly quilt done! I used my Baptist Fan template on the HQ16 and was quite pleased with how it turned out! I'm giving this to my brother and his wife.

Baptist fan is my absolute favorite quilting design! It looks wonderful on your brothers quilt. The "mouse" needs a trap!

LOVE your plaid shoo fly. One of my favourite blocks and this is a really nice setting/colour scheme :)

I totally eat brownies that way too. Fortunately my DH likes the borders, so it all evens out. The mail was a really nice touch.

Your shoo fly quilt is gorgeous! The quilting is delightful. It's a great gift.

Very funny! Sweet of the "mouse" to cover his (her?) tracks. Great quilt and quilting.

Great looking quilt, and I love your 'mouses' way of covering his tracks.

At least your mouse had "some" self control - I would have needed a much larger envelope to cover my tracks! :P

I SO LOOOOOOVE your Shoo Fly in plaids were all the fabrics plaids that you used? ....maybe this would be a great way to use up shirt scraps? since there are small squares...? ok, enought of me thinking out loud ;)

Your boarders look great!!! BEAUTIFUL!!! ~Bonnie in SE Texas
