This is "Sue the Squirrel"
She is one of the "Funky Friends Factory" adorable stuffed animal patterns,
that I made in someone's favorite color!
You see a few weeks ago on my way to quilt club, I saw a squirrel
that had been run over in the street.
When I got there, I went into my "ewwwwwwe...there's a dead squirrel" story,
only to find out that one of our own was telling her story
of hitting the poor little guy!
She was visibly upset!
So what would all good quilt club folks do?
Your absolutely right, we went shopping for squirrel yard ornaments
and decorated her yard while she was on vacation!
This one's "nuts" light up at night.
We even added a little note before we left them.
As soon as she got home the texts started to fly.
We didn't admit to anything for 3 days.
She asked her neighbors who were taking care of her yard about it, and
when they claimed the squirrels weren't there the last time they were over,
that comment was met with a response of
"how well do you know these neighbors" and "do you trust them"?
We were dying laughing behind those texts!
But the best was when someone, who shall remain nameless drove by after work
one night and reported back that, yes, indeed the "nuts" were glowing in the dark!
Oh my goodness the joy it brought everyone.
Can you believe she even brought the little note off the squirrel
to quilt club last week to compare handwriting?
Yes Joi...Deb and I had a blast with this prank!
I hope you and your new friends live long and prosper.
And you keep all those words of wisdom headed our way...
cause we are enjoying that last one...
It' really is OK to be a little nuts!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
