Last week we had some very mild temperatures which seemed to bring a few squirrels out of hibernation. Who could blame them? It was 10 degrees…in January!
I wanted to include a squirrel block in the quilt I am designing for my Sunday Afternoon Applique Group, so I spent a bit of time studying the little creatures. I came up with some surprising tidbits. (tidbit: A small and particularly interesting item of gossip or information).
Squirrels always seem to know where to find their next meal, even if it means the birds go hungry!
Squirrels seem to know who the enemy is…in this case, Bruin!
They have crazy families like the rest of us!
This is a sneak peek of part of the pattern I designed for the group…
…and I found the perfect squirrel fabric…of all places…in my stash!
This is a quilt I was working on about 5 years ago. I put it away for a while, and I must admit, I forgot about it. That is until I read Audrey’s post on her blog “Quilty Folk”.
I love words appliqued on quilts. My original plan was to applique words on 3 borders (the top and sides) and applique the year on the bottom. My issue/challenge/dilemna is this: When I found the quilt in the closet, I didn’t find any of the border pieces or any of the green fabric I used for the word “Family”. I would really like to say that I remember where I put them, but I think we all know the answer! So it’s time to put my thinking cap on and figure out how I will finish this quilt!
Til next time…
