I think this turned out to be a little cutie - I'm very pleased with the color selection and the final product.  Just seems wrong somehow to be stitching snowmen when it is 57F and sunny outside (and no, I do not live in southern California!). 

I am always amused at how our Gray Squirrels are able to defy gravity as they navigate up and down the big, old Douglas Fir trees.

Sunday morning, I looked up to see this Gray Guy coming my way...

"Are you passing out sunflowers?", he asked.  

"Cuz if you are, I could eat several dozen!" 

"Thanks - sorry for talking with my mouth full!"

Congrats on a definitely cute finish... and a darn fine gravity-defying squirrel :)

Happy Monday from sunny So CA! lol

Snowman Too is going on my to buy list! It is delightful.

I never really thought about the squirrels running up and down the trees defying gravity, but now that you mention it - I wonder...

What a super cute finish! Great job. Love the squirrel pictures!

Deb said...

That's really a cute finish. But seems more appropriate to here where it's 15 degrees than 57! That sounds absolutely balmy to me!

What a cute finish. I am not a snowman fan. (Have enough of that white stuff in my back yard, Thank you very much! LOL) But your little finish is cute.

I love your squirrel photos. Adorable. Of course they don't stay still long enough in my backyard for me to take a photo even if I wanted to. :)
