Raccoon Rabble by Plum Street Samplers

This is only the second "stack" I've done this year, and I must be stuck on the letter R because the first one was Roo Crew. The Raccoons are probably my favorite so far, although I do admit that achieving an acceptable body shape was a bit challenging for me. The baby steals my heart though, with his tiny little claws (I can say this because I did not create them - I only replicated them with needle and thread!).. my mother would beg to differ, as she's had plenty of run-ins with their bands traipsing through her back yard, knocking over her flower pots! - Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers
