What a wonderful little block. I had a dream last night that I woke up to snowdrifts in the yard. I live in Florida, so I was disappointed when there was no snow this morning. Guess I need to take a road trip north, soon.

BizyStitches said...

I'm happy new follower number 558, I'm feeling that is a lucky number. Humm. funny story??? I usually crack myself up with some of the things I say. But now I'm blank. But to relate to your squirrel in the darling quilt block I will tell you we lived in Portland, OR for 20 plus years and we had squirrels in the back yard entertaining us all the time. We now have moved to central Kansas and have lived here for just a few days short of one year. I hung my squirrel feeding in a tree the first day we were here. Guess what? Not one single squirrel has bothered to come to our yard and entertain me. I have it hanging in a place I can see while I'm on my computer. Oh gosh so sorry this is so long. LOL

We recently had the senior games in my area. We had only 6 ladies who showed up, so the ladies played against the men's teams and we won 2 out of 3 games. You should have seen the faces of the guys-they weren't happy to be beaten by a bunch of "girls".

Lisa Cox said...

Hmmm, something funny...
I was mobbed by a group of 17 guineas and 30 chickens about an hour ago. They needed their feed bowls filled and they all came running to the run door and jumped up trying to get into the bucket I carry their feed in.

Elisabetta said...

I am your follower and here's my funny tale:
right this morning my two year old girl asked to go poop, she likes to see what she's doing, so happened that her poop splashed her, she yelled to wipe her, so I cleaned her bum, but she said "no, mommy my mouth!"
funny but SO disgusting

I really love your block Vicki. My favorite is that adorable squirrel, but that owl is pretty cute too.

Cloudmom said...

I pinned the adorable owl. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cloudmom said...

Your quilts are beautiful. I loved looking at them on pinterest. This is an awhh story instead of a funny story but still cute. In class we were talking about feelings and my three year old student turned around and said "I love my dad the best." His dad was so moved.

Lou said...

Love the block!!!!!
The only really funny thing going on here are the kittens playing...um racing around the house and wresting with each other and the older cats:) What fun!!!

That is such a cute block! I especially love the little squirrel - adorable!

Andrea said...

What a cute block...that squirrel reminds me of our pet grey squirrels...who right now appear not to be so funny...we think they're eating holes into our sprinklers! And we may have a pesky raccoon on the loose too! They work in the dark...
Anyway, thanks for the great giveaway.

ELNM said...

All I can think of is a (bad) joke - why did the rubber chicken cross the road? He wanted to stretch his legs! Sorry for the humor, and thanks for the giveaway!

Pam said...

I LOVE that owl block. I've downloaded it and hope I can do such a good job. I really like the look on his face, he is looking a bit annoyed. Maybe there is some 'Leaf Speak' going on there. And he is like "Fall already and shut up!"
