Quick Laurel Panel &Chunky the squirrel




Sorry for the poor quality of the picture but I was shooting through a screen and into the sun. Chunky climbed up the bird feeder and hung upside down trying to get some thistle seed. It was really fun to watch. I can't help noticing how poofy and thick their tails are. That's supposed to be a sign of a very cold winter to come. Hope that's an untrue Old Wives Tale cause the squirrels outside in my yard a just plain fat and thick-coated. By the way, that's the last yellow rose of summer hanging on to that bush.
I have a plant related question for anyone who can answer I'd appreciate it. Can I move 3 bunches of cala lillies that have been in the flower box for a couple of years and move them elsewhere without killing them? I want to get them out of the box in front of my door since, once they are finished blooming all that remains is a very large bunch of long unruly leaves. I hate to kill them but I'm not sure if I've left it too long for transplanting. Help!
I was surfing around seeing what people were up to and ran across Brooke's Blog. We both are working on a Laurel Burch Panel. Brooke has taken the time to make hers unique, whereas I have thrown some borders on it and called it finished. I just want some festive stuff to have for the holidays without a bunch of finishing details. Hers looks cool but then everything those sisters do looks cool. There must have been something in the water they grew up drinking. Anyway, hop on over there and have a look see when you can and then hop on over to Melody and see the great piece she made using a horse silhouette. Great colors and design.
Well, at least I've got something finished(I love that word) bright to hang up and bring some holiday cheer to the place. We really need cheer at this time of year since we are in a forrest of trees and by 3 in the afternoon it looks like 5. If you go down the hill and get out of the trees you are always surprised to find that it's still daytime out there. Needless to say this time of year it's very dark, often early.
I did a lot of cleaning Friday and my back is screaming so I'm taking a cup of tea and something to get rid of the pain.
Talk to you tomorrow.

Now I wish I too had bought that Laurel Burch panel. I feel left out, sorta. Hmmm but I COULD make my own Christmas banner. I will think on that...

I also almost bought that panel; it looks great, and after all, I don't see why holiday stuff should be terribly time consuming. There's enough going on otherwise.

Your Laurel Burch panel looks terrific! Why cut up a good thing?!

I've noticed that the neighbors horses are looking a bit thicker and fuzzier than normal. Uh-oh!

I have just scrolled down all your blogs on this page. Enjoyable reading! I have two quilt tops, quilted and waiting for the final binding so that I can say the magic word, 'finished' too!
