Potential Squirrels – Not This Month Though – Maybe
Lest you think we are being baby babies here, this was the temperature after spending the day with our sweet little ones yesterday. I never in all my born days have heard of an 80 DEW POINT in Wisconsin. We are not the tropics – we are not in Texas or near the equator – we are in a NORTHERN state. Good flippin’ grief. It is hot and drippy just blinking. Okay, I don’t feel any cooler saying all of that but it just needed to be said. I’m supposed to be talking about potential squirrels. Oh yeah.
Potential Squirrel #1
Vicki at Vicki’s Crafts and Quilting shared this cute and adorable table topper this week during a Christmas blog hop. I love all things Christmas so I was thrilled to pop around the hop, so to speak. Vicki shared a tutorial on how to make this table topper as well, and I just knew I wanted to drop everything darn thing and make it right this minute. NOW!
Since the opening photo is fact, not fiction, there is no way in H this squirrel is happening yesterday, today or tomorrow. Even though it would interrupt the cutest quilt ever for a sweet girl (Cind-erella – Her Carriage Awaits Update), we would still be squirreling it if we could. I showed the photo to Sue and said how of these do you think we need to make? She said a dozen. WHAT??!!?? I was thinking six but then she started naming some people who would definitely like it. No squirrel for 27th and Sandra’s linkup party but not for lack of inspiration . . .
Potential Squirrel #2
After spending a fabulous day with the littles, we can home to
sweat read email. I had a new message from Patty at Elm Street Quilts, so I happily checked it out. And then I saw this photo and thought holy moly.
Dare I inspire to have ANOTHER, and a second squirrel for this month? I showed this photo to Sue and asked if she liked it. Of course, she did – why wouldn’t she?!! It just happens to be one-fourth of the Fizzy block we are making for the beehive group this month. The one I don’t have finished yet because the sewing room is too . . . say it with me . . . HOT. I’m like shoot – we have the template right here – we have oodles of fabric – we could easily get a quilt top ready in just an hour or two. Right??! I could just suck it up and lose a few pounds while sewing in there. Or not. Not this weekend, that’s for sure. But the weather is supposed to break . . . so there is still a sliver of hope for one of these by the 27th. I’m not holding my breath though, and don’t hold yours either. These are potential squirrel wanna-bees for us and they’ll be brewing/stewing a while longer.
