    I had a question about this swap before I joined. Do the blocks have to be something pieced for Fall (such as the turkey that RedGarnett222 did) or can it just be a block with fall colors? I'm looking at some print for the main middle square of my block that has pumpkins on it.
    Hi ozone,
    I am sorry I missed your post. Fall colors is the subject mostly. It can be embroidery, or applique or pieced or ?? It is a funky swap and that means whatever you would like to make. Hope you join us and have a good time with the swap.

    Here is the finish of the turkey blocks. I hope everyone likes them as much as I do! I am going to include the eye beads as a side pinned on addition.

    I am so glad to hear you all say that! Thanks so much to each of you for the positive response to him. :~)

    Next are the squirrels. They are started and I will give you a sneek peek later. This is so fun!

    OK Girls THis is the squirrel blocks. I kinda think it looks like a squirrel flying a leaf kite ... LOL!

    You like it? I don't know why the background is showing kinda blue, but it is a mint green. I have attached the eye bead onto my name tag so you won't have to look for one. It is 9 1/2 x 9 1/2 square. Honestly... I think it looks much nicer in person.

    Oh my GOODNESS!!! Red, your blocks are some of the cutest I've ever seen!!! I'm so excited for this! I have lots and lots of precuts so some of my fabrics can't be prewashed...is that okay? Also, can I use white for some of my backgrounds?

    Thank you rhonda, ms. grace and honespun! I loved making this set of squirrels.

    Lol rhonda... I know what you mean about thinking fall. I have about a million cute images running around in my head. It is hard to choose my next set to make. It is between a cornicopia or a basket of pumpkins and gourds. Well, we will see how this comes together.

    Homespun... Yes you can use the precuts. It is in the main page under the rules if you want to read it. OK? Have fun with your blocks!

    :~)

    You just have to let me have that little guy. I just adore it. He will go great in my office where this will hang. I feed the little squirrels here and so this would just kick the boss in the pants.

    LOL I am so glad you like him quiltermomma! I don't care for squirrels in my yard. They eat my flower bulbs and young shoots up. But, when I lived in davenport, Ia., they had black ones in our neighborhood. They were fun to watch. A city to the north of us had white ones they prized highly. They would put corn on the cob up in the trees for them on a wooden holder.

    fWhat is really funny is that we have a telephone pole next to our front porch at office. They hang upside down from their back legs/paws and eat the nuts we put out for them. We do not do shelled nuts anymore because they got so messy, but I buy the whole shelled nuts and there is less mess. I had a momma one a couple of years ago and she could come into the office onto the file cabinet and sit and eat the nuts with me at my desk watching her. She did not care and was not afraid of you. She had four babies in one of the spool wire reals on the warehouse shelf. She got ran over and we rescued the babies and took to the vet which is "licensed" to take care of baby squirrels.
