Do you stitch in public? I do! I was able make a nice start on the borders of "Happy Gobble Gobble Day" while attending a University of Oregon mens' basketball game last night. I did not stitch during the game - just before, during half-time and time-outs. For years I stitched while I commuted back and forth to work via a Lane Transit District bus. I often received comments from other riders on my stitching. Suprisingly most times it was men who noticed my WIP and had something to say about the design or the effort involved in the process.
I don't think our Chattering Chipmunk bother to hibernate in our temperate climate.
They seems to hang out in the Big Woodpile all year long.
I think you'd agree the Chips are fat enough to withstand hibernation!
The other day there were three of 'em scurrying around.
There are two in this photo.
And here's the third one!
Ann over at Beadlework is fond of my Flicker photos. This photo perfectly illustrates a fact I just learned. Note how the long feathers on the tip of his tail are balanced against the green metal container. I found out that if you want to attract Flickers to your feeders, the feeder must be large enough to accommodate the use of the tail as a 'balancer'. Otherwise the Flicker's body swings back and forth and he will not linger. Who knew? Now we do!
