Lately I've "gotten back" a few small pieces I've stitched--my house is SO full and so are my walls!! However, you know I love ornaments, so I'm turning them into ornaments so I can enjoy them! This little squirrel was a very small framed picture I stitched for my father in 1982. He was very ill and died at a young age. He used to love to watch the squirrels play in the yard--we lived in an older neighborhood with giant oak trees and squirrels everywhere! I made this for him and he thought it was cute! I gave him several "squirrel" gifts during those years!
Anyway, I decided it would be a perfect fall ornament. It is stitched on brown Aida cloth. I used a couple of fall fabrics and brown rick rack and leopard rick rack, accented with brown buttons. I used a sheer brown and yellow ribbon for the hanger, attached with more brown buttons. The backing is light brown with little mini pumpkins.
I have no idea who the designer was--I am thinking it might have been a note card.
**ALSO, in looking at this now, I'm wondering if it's actually a chipmunk??? (because of the coloring!) Oh well, if it is, no one has ever said anything! HA HA
I am putting up my Halloween tree now, so check back to see it! Thank you for stopping by--please come back soon!
