Snail Catching!

Grace decided this afternoon to go snail catching in the backyard. Well it was supposed to be bug and insect catching but all we found were snails. We found 3. I am sure there were more but don't want it to get too crowded in that bug catcher!

She was pretty excitied, thinking she was just like Bindi The Jungle Girl, who she adores at the moment. *sigh* Seems like she was just into Angelina Ballerina and now its big girl stuff like Bindi. Still if watching Bindi is going to teach her about animals and how to take care of our environment, then I'll put up with Bindi's cheesiness!

But all those snails gave me a little idea. I have joined the 6" - 12" mini quilt trading swap group on flickr, sort of an off shoot of the Dolls Quilt Swap 3 recently. I'm thinking a snail shell could be maybe a crazy log cabin block? Maybe? These rushed drawings don't do it justice, but I've got the vision in my head, I'll give it a bash.
