This & That

If you are in need of a quick Christmas gift to sew, this runner is the one for you!  It's made with half of one charm pack and a smidge of fabric for the border.  It comes together quickly and easily and looks much more complicated than it is.  The fabric is "Jovial" by Basic Grey.

I can see myself making this runner over and over again.  It's great to use with scraps.   I love that it's titled "Cinnamon Sticks".  So perfect for this time of year.

I had a little visitor perched on my tulip tree.  There are lots of squirrels in our neighborhood.  The black ones pop out against the snow.  This one appeared to be warming it's paws.  After 50 degree temps and rain, our snow is gone.  I'll enjoy it while I can because here in Michigan, there is more snow on the horizon!

  8. Renee,
    I am so behind in reading my favorite blogs! I have to say I have never seen a black squirrel before. It took me a while to figure out that it really was one. Down here in Oklahoma, we have brown and gray ones. Just thought it so interesting.
    I'm having those hectic days as well. :)
