Sunny Sunday!!!

sunshine & warmer temps ~
we need the sun now to dry up the saturated spongey ground...

I was going outside to take some photos 
of the beautiful morning and I heard an awful screeching sound above my head ~

high up on the eave of the chippy old farmhouse was this fellow!

...hanging by his back toes and yelling at us!

I wanted a better snap of him (her?) so I decided to walk a little closer...
the closer I got, 
the more squirrel-y he became
twitching his tail and whiskers ~

I swear I thought he was going to fling himself at me 
& we would recreate a scene from one of the National Lampoon movies!

thankfully, it stood it's ground 
...and I stood mine.
isn't he cute?
ny the looks of that one chewed-up ear, 
I'll bet he is the head of the Rogue Squirrel Club here at the farm...

...even Minew was keeping cover from him,
camouflaging herself in the brush ~

Buddy didn't seem to mind him,
although the commotion did rouse him from his slumber in the sun ~

here is a little progress of our bathroom,
...you can see the toe molding being put back in place 
and the beautiful cherry countertop that Peter milled from our property ~
it's coming together nicely!

...and I wanted to let you know that the NEW Designs for Valentines Day will be
released this coming week!

there will be a total of ~

3 counted cross stitch patterns
3 freehand cross stitch patterns
1 rug hooking pattern
1 quilting pattern
1 punch needle pattern

...along with New wooden items that Peter has made for your sewing room!


the kits for the first 2014 Little Stitches Handwork Club project are now shipping ~
Club Members should be receiving theirs this week!

Have a beautiful day my Friends ~

* Blessed be *

The bathroom is looking good, Lori! We have some sun as well, and warmer temperatures, very March-like weather...it's a welcome relief. I love to watch the antics of our squirrel friends , too.

Hi Lori,
Every once in awhile we get a squirrel that decided EVERYWHERE is his domain and chirps at us until we get inside and then sometimes keeps on going.
You got some fantastic shots of him.

Your farmhouse look bathroom is going to be beautiful!

I think you have been a busy lady with all those new patterns to come out!

I'm loving your bathroom, Lori, and I'm also loving your cheeky little squirrel! They do have attitudes, don't they?
Bought my first piece of white ironstone yesterday...a soup toureen minus the lid. Couldn't resist...it was only $7... but the whole time I kept saying to myself, I bet Lori would love this!

"I need to laugh, and when the sun is out, I've got something I can laugh about!" Thank goodness for the sunshine, today! Sweet Buddy looks like nothing would disturb him.
We have the Flying Squirrelly Brothers here. We're constantly amazed at the leaps they make. Skye has pretty much given up on chasing them.
Your re-model is looking great. Peter is THE MAN!!

Nice day to you Lori

What an inquisitive little face on this squirrel! We too have a few that tear around the yard, up and down the trees and sit smack dab in the middle of the bird feeders getting chubby. They do seem to leave enough for the birds tho and everyone's gotta eat right? They even hang upside down from the one that's not open enough! Watching them always makes me smile.
The bath is looking wonderful! Bet you are just waiting for a nice long soak!
